The Band Explains: Indigo Face - 'A Womxn Will Save Us All'
Indigo Face talk to us about the concept behind their brand new visuals for ‘A Womxn Will Save Us’, which celebrates the power of womxn.
Where was the video for ‘A Womxn Will Save Us All’ filmed?
The video was filmed in different parts of London. We asked the participants to choose a place where they’d feel comfortable to be filmed at: some of them wanted to be filmed at home, others in the open air, in nature or while walking in the city.
How does the video connect with the song?
The song embodies the sensitivity, the hopefulness, the strength and frustrations that being a Womxn can bring about, while processing all those feelings into a uniting and elevating level of consciousness. We wanted to show this in the video too and, in fact, the video is an urgent call to action: an invitation to celebrate every type of Womxn.
Do you have any behind the scenes stories you could share with us?
The music video is a joint effort between director Cat Couture and lead singer Mary Terragin. During the filming the energy was of pure sisterhood and a safe space was created for the participants, so they could freely express themselves. Every womxn we filmed was also interviewed after the filming and the result is a beautiful documentary that will be released after the official music video.
Can you tell us about the ideas/ themes/ imagery used?
The song tells the story of a Womxn who’s the only person that can save the world. It describes a world where people are disconnected from their emotions and where the only way to heal is to surrender to kindness and empathy.
Is there a message the video is trying to convey?
The womxn in the video are shown in their diverse glorious strength and vulnerability, all coming together in a unified energy to gracefully but firmly remind the world of their existence and their importance. We hope people will feel inspired and will join us in celebrating the power of womxn, because if that power is recognised by us all, there is potential for the world to be more beautiful.
