By this point, we’re all obsessed with the indie-pop hot-shot BENEE. The kiwi’s FIRE ON MARZZ carried us through summer with bops like “Soaked” and “Evil Spider.” But now the real hidden gem on the project, “Glitter,” just got the video treatment. And it’s just a quirky as the singer herself.
Part cartoon part live action, “Glitter” depicts BENNE and her small fluffy monster friend hanging out in a plush space-like universe filled with other little friendly monsters and tropical flora. During what seems like a fun fireside kick-back, BENEE and her cute monster pal are suddenly attacked by an evil bird duo on galactic scooters. It’s safe to say that the video’s director and illustrator Steven Merens, has taken us inside BENEE’s own mind. Of the video’s ideation Merens said,
The process of coming up with a treatment flowed very easily, as I envisioned an animated dream world for BENEE to inhabit along with a monster sidekick and as many bizarre characters as I could cram into the span of three minutes. My goal with the video was to use many techniques to give it a unique feel.
Will BENEE and her monster pal escape? Will they “make it to their own party?” Watch the “Glitter” video below to find out!
