Sex sells. That’s a given. From an artistic perspective, is the sex the payoff or is the sex there to make you think?
That’s an unmistakable edge about Boy Epic’s music video for “Dirty Mind” that borders on exploitative and cheap. The song – all dark electro beats and treated vox – shares space for attention with the decadent visuals of thighs and sighs whilst the clichéd title dances before your synapses.
There’s a poetic veneer to the verse that we like:
I know what you like/Get the champagne/Hands on your thighs/Wanna get your body high
Get low/Or no
I know you wanna fight/Set a new pace/Wanna do you right/Keep your back to the sky
Go slow/Or no
So yeah, there’s power in “Dirty Mind” that goes deeper, much deeper than superficial consumption will reveal. Dig deeper, boys and girls.
… still there’s more …
