Arca
“Reverie”

It’s coming. On April 7, Arca is releasing his new self-titled album on XL Recordings. Following last month’s video for “Anoche,” Arca returns today with another video collaboration with Jesse Kanda for a track called “Reverie.” Here’s what Arca had to say about it:

Bullfighting is a piercing metaphor: you are fighting a bull, and at the same your self. You are not the victim or the oppressor, you are both — Animality and bestiality are conflated. Evoking sex invokes our animality. And evoking our animality, in turn, invokes spirituality.

It’s sexual. It’s bloody. It’s exquisite. Watch the video above.
