Kate NV is a solo project of Moscow-based producer, songstress, composer, designer, Kate Shilonosova, also known to be co-author and front girl of Moscow new wave-post punk band ГШ. Two years after для FOR, she released a new album titled Room for the Moon which is out via RVNG Intl. Check the new video for the track “Luna”.
For this video, Kate’s playful imagination reveals itself once again as it takes inspiration from Samuel Beckett’s performance Quad, however these repetitious dancers vogue and mimick playful cats in a fuzzy hue blurring the lines of nostalgia and psychedelia.
Kate says on the video “Lu na was originally planned as a dance clip consisting mostly of one repetitive loop — simple pattern where cats walk in a square one by one. This pattern was hugely inspired and based on Beckett’s piece ‘Quad’ which I love. Originally I just wanted the sun to appear slowly behind those cats while they walk. All of the dancers were wonderful, they brought so much life to the characters of those cats!”
