Self Esteem 'How Can I Help You' by Rebecca Lucy Taylor
The second in a trilogy of videos for Self Esteem, directed by the artist herself - aka Rebecca Lucy Taylor - sees her burning up the screen entirely from behind a drumkit.
As with the first for Prioritise Pleasure, this is another riveting performance to accompany another self-revelatory track, How Can I Help You. In fact, even more so. It's just her, drumming out the primal beat of the song while lipsyncing but drawing a cathartic power from the experience -and also simply revelling in the physical act.
Ultimately it's a great device to show the artist as a courageous and charismatic performer, determined to be recognised on her own terms. Self Esteem is taking it to the next level, and it's really impressive.
