If you follow us on Twitter, you may have seen our Mysteries from Nite Jewel Video Set photo series. Did the octovomit photos leave you puzzled? Probably. It all comes to fruit today with Nite Jewel’s release of her video for “One Second of Love,” the title-track of her forthcoming album. Directed by Delaney Bishop, who has previously worked with Snoop Dog and Marilyn Mason, the video features a typical party with atypical guests. It presents a conflation of notions of transgression, excess, asceticism, and conformity. Flanked by two identically dressed dancers, Ramona works her way through the video in an oddly intriguing form. Should we even mention the Narnia-like creature who makes a strange appearance? Watch for yourself above.
In other awesome Nite Jewel news, you can hear Ramona on DNTEL’s new album. Titled Aimlessness, it’s DNTEL’s first release in five years and it’s out in May. Read more at Tiny Mix Tapes.
