Wanton Witch & Jose Vigers reflect on solemnity & abandoned pasts in the video for ‘Lament Ceremony’

, 14 April 2022

Wanton Witch released album Wanton Witch via Stroboscopic Artefacts on June 4, 2021, with the video for ‘Lament Ceremony’ premiering on AQNB today. The self-titled album soundtracks the Non Non Non label cofounder’s journey, from an isolated upbringing on the Borneo Island to creating queer staples within Bangkok’s nightlife community.

Joined by Berlin-based visual artist Jose Vigers, Wanton Witch opens up the world of ‘Lament Ceremony’, a dream-like plane with rooms collapsing into holographic symbols and totems. Wanton Witch’s abrasive club accentuates the video’s iconoclastic provocations, rushing the beat into scenes of a solemn face shifting between remnant interior traces. It’s an undeniably up-tempo anthem, charging into the unknown despite moments of bittersweet loss.**
