Move Monday: Vodoo In My Blood

rosamund

I love the energy Rosamund Pike brings to the roles I have seen her play, with this music video for Massive Attack feat. Young Fathers being no exception. Aside from this stunning piece of art, the latest film I saw her in was Return to Sender – which I would definitely recommend. It’s a feel-good film, I reckon.

Anyway, to make Monday more bearable, here is a cool clip of Rosamund and some winning beats (as always) from Massive Attack. Enjoy.

Move Monday: Chelsea Wolfe

Chelsea Wolfe is the perfect addition to Move Monday. Her music is right up my alley and her hauntingly beautiful videos are the icing on the cake. Here’s Carrion Flowers to help you through your Monday. Enjoy.

Wonder

“You can’t let your curiosity die”

As The Visual Female developed I began including videos under the Move Monday section to embrace the moving image as well as the still. While those clips are highly driven by the visual – largely music videos – today I have something different (and amazing) to share. Wonder is a short documentary about last months Visual Female, Gina Martynova, directed by Jesse Brass as part of his ‘Making Art’ series.

Wonder is put together really well, allowing viewers to form a connection with Gina and gain more understanding of what she (and Starry) believe in. For Gina it is all about curiosity, the beauty in the fact that there is always more to discover in this world. You’ll have to watch to learn about Starry, but she seems pretty cool too. Wonder shows us Gina in her work and living space as well as beautiful close-ups of her art, something you can’t experience by simply seeing her work on the internet. This tasteful documentary is definitely worth a watch. And the best bit, Jesse has already made a bunch of films about other artists, some of which I am going to get stuck into now – the pink hues of Jen Mann are calling me in. So make a cup of tea (even if it’s hot outside) and relax while you get to know a few of the many amazing artists in the world bringing us joy through beauty.

Move Monday: Bitches Brew

crossses

Today’s Move Monday is a little hit and miss for me but I wanted to share it anyway. I’m more in love with the video than the song itself, although it does grow on me – and isn’t bad to begin with at all. What bothers me the most is the band shots. You know, silhouetted men have never really got me going. So in an ideal world they wouldn’t be there, but then again it is their song so they have all the right in the world to be there. The stunning women, grungy imagery, fun rituals and skipping (you have the love the skipping) are the parts that make this video worthwhile to me. In fact, they are so superb that I had to share it here, so if you can overlook the men take a look below.

Move Monday: Young Girls

I just adore this music video by Princess Nokia. Not only is the song really cool but the video is incredibly powerful and a good reminder about the honest connection and respect between women and nature. Living in my technology driven world it is a refreshing change to see women celebrating life with each other and our Mother Earth. Listen to the lyrics because they are really good. And then maybe watch it again. Beauty and power. x

Maya Payne is an up-and-coming singer/songwriter from Christchurch, New Zealand. At only 17, Maya is making a big splash in the music scene with her distinctive vocals and contemporary sound. She has just released her first video, shot in Santorini, which is a kaleidoscopic look at both Maya and the architecture of the island. Of course, the song is pretty fantastic too, so have a listen and support Maya as she begins her career as an amazing musician.
