A riot spills into something even more destructive in this deftly animated video.
Peter Huang, director: "'The Wild' is a visual essay, semi-inspired by films like Baraka. I was really intrigued by how the film, through editing and structure, can wordlessly present a philosophical point of view. I attempted something similar with Omar's video, basing it around ideas of violence and its relation to the natural world. The use of animation I think is a good way to present these graphic images without making the audience shut off instantly."
With lyrics that make this a "anti-party anthem" from a self-described "anti-social pessimist" — who samples the classically mopey trip-hop sounds of Portishead — you'd be correct in assuming that the last place Alessia Cara would want to be is a typical house party video that's frozen in time.
