PREMIERE: Micropixies Releases New Music Video For “New Year’s Day”

Wrapping up what so far is our last premiere week of the year, we got San Francisco based talent Micropixie for the premiere of her new music video for the latest track “New Year’s Day.” The song exudes a neo-noir vibe reminiscent of Portishead, Massive attack and MIA, articulated through Micropixie’s charmingly off-kilter worldview. 

Describing the video, Micropixie writes: “My ‘New Year’s Day’ video explores themes of socioeconomic inequality, xenophobia and patriarchal oppression through the story of two brown women: one is free to walk around the world, and the other, seemingly confined to her living room. I felt that by juxtaposing the webcam-like antics of the ‘Insider’ with the playful behaviour of the ‘Outsider’, the viewer might ponder the relationship between the two characters. Are they different representations of the same person in time? Or is one of them dreaming the other? Also, since the primary motif within my third album — Dark Sight of the Moon — pertains to vision, watching, and seeing things as they really are, I invite the viewer to question who is observing whom here.”

Micropixie has so far remained an under-the-radar talent, but she brings with her a trove of sounds, concepts, and narratives that speak to her own international upbringing and global perspective. She summarizes this complex interweaving of fact, fiction, and cultural politics in her animated short, “50 Shades of Beige”.
