J. Zunz – the solo reinvention of Lorena Quintanilla – has shared the video for the single “Four Women And Darkness“, which is taken from the forthcoming second album, Hibiscus, out on 21st August via Rocket Recordings. The following video was first screened over the weekend as part of Sofasonic Festival, as J. Zunz was set to play Supersonic this year as part of the label’s showcase.
About the video Quintanilla comments: “‘Four Women And Darkness’ is a story from my grandmother’s childhood. She told me that once during wartime in México in the late 1920’s, she and her sisters were hidden by her grandmother in a little, cold secret room. She hid them there because the militia wanted to search the house. Soldiers used to look for women or girls to rape them or to kidnap them. My grandmother and her sisters stayed there in the dark room for hours until the soldiers left.”
She continues: “I asked four close friends of mine to express their own darkness. They all come from different cities and backgrounds. I instructed them with some movements remarking and reassuring the limits of our bodies, which for years have belonged to everyone but us.”
