Arca's Video for 'Desafio' is a Glorious Statement

    Arca, AKA Alejandro Ghersi, is out with his new video for "Desafio" and it is exotic, odd, devastating, and freeing - all at once. Directed by Jesse Kanda, it is another bold, almost jarring visual combined with dark, moving music. We see his body, dressed in black tights and lots of leather to match, being dragged across the woods. Strobes lights are constantly flashing throughout the video as he makes intimate eye contact with the viewers, as if he's pleading for something. The title of the single "Desafio" which is sung in Spanish, translates to "challenge," but in this case the translation leans more towards, "battle," which fits appropriately for the imagery. His new self-titled album, which showcases Arca's great attempt to make beauty out of pain, is out now via XL Recordings.
