MAY 7 | The White-hot Stormy Night
THE MIX | Some Kind of Lunatic
05.07.18 | It's a melodramatic, white-hot, stormy summer's night. Maybe you've just had your heart broken. Maybe you just feel like being alone. Like dancing alone and yelling into the night. Maybe you and your best friend or lover know each other well enough to drink endless wine and just listen. Whatever your freedom—you're alive and unbridled and euphoric and alone, flying through the rain. This is the soundtrack.
"Champion of Love" is the title track from Nyssa's debut EP. The accompanying video is a "bizarro Dionysian exultation—a puckish takedown of sterile adulthood" that serves as a preview of what's to come on the EP.
Champion of Love evades classification inhabiting a place where power-pop, punk, soul, glam, disco, and country all combined, to create a glitter-soaked explosion. Nyssa helmed the production and arrangements, while enlisting AL-P (MSTRKRFT) for co-production, Ben Reinhartz (Dilly Dally) on drums, and Jeff McMurrich (Idée Fixe Records) to mix.
WATCH: Billie Eilish Declares Your Opinion Of Her "Not My Responsibility" In Powerful New Short Film
The young star bears all in "NOT MY RESPONSIBILITY."
Break out pop star and five time Grammy-award-winner Billie Eilish is sick of your body shaming.
The 18-year-old just dropped a powerful new short film in which she slowly removes her clothes as we hear her voice hypnotically decry the media's obsession with her body. She says, "Some people hate what I wear. Some people praise it. Some people use it to shame others. Some people use it to shame me. But I feel you watching, always, and nothing I do goes unseen. So, whether I feel your stares, your disapproval, or your sigh of relief—if I lived by them, I'd never be able to move. Would you like me to be smaller? Weaker? Softer? Taller? Would you like me to be quiet? Do my shoulders provoke you? Does my chest? Am I my stomach, my hips?" Meanwhile, she strips to a black bikini in slow motion, eventually sinking into a pool of black viscous liquid and declaring your opinion "not my responsibility."
