Au Ra 'Dead Girl' by Elliott Gonzo
Au/Ra takes 3D form in the spectacular promo for Dead Girl, directed by Elliott Gonzo.
Opening with a kick of nostalgia - in the form of a dial-up modem sound and an intro reminiscent of Evanescence's Bring Me To Life - we see the artist jump from a skyscaper, before leading an army of people through a dystopian city.
The title Dead Girl is a metaphor for feeling like an outcast, and the environment a reference to the isolated conditions we are currently living in.
The gritty, decaying cityscape, paired with futuristic washes of neon green and holographic effects, create a dichotomic aesthetic straight out of a video game, whilst the craft of the world and characters is absolutely breathtaking.
A true visual feat, the stunning concept is paired with an important message, acting as a symbol of hope and empowerment for lost individuals across the globe.
