Music video for Brooklyn-based musician Niabi
Assistant director: Eduardo Alcivar Gonzalez
Hairstylist: Jeanise Aviles
Makeup artist: Nancy Lan
Accessories: Alibi NY
The visuals within this music video for Niabi are inspired by Greek mythology's Medusa, although not in a literal reference. "We'll Always End Up On Fire" is from Niabi's forthcoming EP, Forest Fires.
Medusa was originally a beautiful maiden, "the jealous aspiration of many suitors," priestess in Athena's temple, but when she and the "Lord of the Sea" Poseidon lay together in Athena's temple, the enraged Athena transformed Medusa's beautiful hair to serpents and made her face so terrible to behold that the mere sight of it would turn onlookers to stone.
And special thanks to the Brooklyn Fire Dept for not giving us a fine with the false alarm from our smoke machine. You guys are the coolest.
