Arca has shared the latest video for a single from KiCk i, her forthcoming album. Filmed during coronavirus lockdown, the glitchy, distorted video accompanies the Venezualan producer’s track “Mequetrefe”, released June 17.
In a recent statement about the video posted to Instagram, Arca calls its production: “one of the most alchemical transformative processes I've ever experienced making a video.”
“We did our best to lovingly, and with care, conceive and produce the video over the course of lockdown,” she continues, “in times when creating sometimes felt like a leap of faith!”
The other previous singles from KiCk i, “Nonbinary” and “Time”, came with visuals released back in late April and mid-May, respectively. The announcement of the album itself followed the 62-minute single “@@@@@”, which at the time was Arca’s first official new music since 2017.
