Rob Ulitski - 30th Mar 2021

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 Lifewe 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.
