Julia Holter shows us what she would do as an all-powerful entity in “Goddess Eyes II,” and it’s a lot more creative than what I had in mind for myself (it involved mostly just unlimited buffalo wings and an American Netflix connection). Here’s director Yelena Zhelezov with her vision behind the clip:
“The video for Julia Holter’s ‘Goddess Eyes II’ is inspired by the Latin phrase ‘deus ex machina.’ In literature, deus ex machina is a plot device for seemingly unresolvable dramaturgical situations. The unexpected and dramatic measure was employed by many Greek tragedians. It is in tribute to Euripides and the literary spirit of the song that the video was directed.”
The Goddess Eyes II 12″ is out now via Domino.
