Video: Arca - "Xen"

Another collaboration with Jesse Kanda.

Arca got fans psyched up for his debut record Xen with a series of mildly horrifying videos by Jesse Kanda, firmly couched within the uncanny valley and starring a genderless, digital character named Xen who Arca's referred to as a kind of fictional alter ego. It makes sense that the character would star again in the song named after them - here's the clip for "Xen," directed by Kanda, featuring Xen and a bunch of strobelit, vaguely robotic nudity. As with our favorite work from this project, you can't look or listen away, no matter how much you might want to. Check it out.
