serpentwithfeet invokes two Kate Bush classics in stunning ‘four ethers’ video
From the experimental R&B singer’s blisters EP.
Josiah Wise aka serpentwithfeet has become one of the rising stars of 2016 with his debut EP blisters. Now he’s released a music video for its powerful centerpiece, ‘four ethers,’ that shows just as much visual flair.
Playing out like cross between Kate Bush’s “white dress” and “red dress” videos for ‘Wuthering Heights,’ it casts Wise in a surreal black void wearing a wavy scarlet outfit distorting his body through remarkable digital effects. As he dances, his body leaves trace images as ghostly as they are psychedelic capturing both the song’s intimacy and operatic grandness.
