Julia Holter | Moni Mon Amie (Video)

Here’s a new video for Julia Holter’s “Moni Mon Amie” from off her most recent record, “Ekstasis”, out now on RVNGIntl. It’s a dreamy song, with shimmering keyboard, and lush vocals. The video for “Moni Mon Amie” was created by Yelena Zhelezov, who describes it as interpreting “the song as a lyrical appeal to the unattainable other, and a conversation that’s being had with oneself. The longing transforms the perception of the everyday, turning each moment into a poetic landscape in which the miniature and the gigantic become interchangeable. Julia plays the subject and the object of desire in this video.” There are some low-budget surreal kind of moments in the video, including a close-up of a person using a typewriter to make a giraffe, with Holter herself as the head, sitting in the distance. She also disappears into a cup of coffee. There are Greek ornamental busts, Holter in triplicate, fish bowls, and slow motion. It’s a creative video that feels like a mix between “Mad Men” and dream states of random office work made artistic — like moving plants, and typing.
