The accompanying music video for ‘La Femme Fantastique’ is the work of artist and animator Ciaran McCusker, who has created a whole trio of videos, to be revealed alongside each upcoming single. Giving the first glimpse of his work was the video for ‘Not About You’ (watch here). For second single ‘La Femme Fantastique’, while the pumping music captures the energy of a hot and steamy dancefloor in full flow, the accompanying video by is gorgeously X-rated, manifesting sex positivity and uninhibited expression on the dancefloor, things that Honey Dijon celebrates unequivocally.
The video’s narrative follows an uninitiated clubber encountering a utopian dancefloor where Honey is goddess and nothing is off-limits, where inhibitions are shed and underground glamour and kink makes way for fully realised desire. Honey’s clear vision for both the single and the visuals stemmed from some of her personal values. Ciaran describes how he approached the brief: “Honey has always been a forerunner of hedonistic party pleasure, so for us to land this job we were really excited knowing that this would influence the video. The concept for the animation is everything that a party should be in our eyes. A place to lose inhibitions and become free on the dance floor as Honey invites us into the depths of the crowd.” – Ciaran McCusker
The video will go live on Friday 7th August to launch Honey’s brand new site, honeyfuckingdijon.com. An evolving page that will be updated throughout the album campaign with new music and merchandise, the site will become a one-stop destination for all things Honey.
