After dropping ‘South of Heaven’ at the beginning of the month, Cosima has now unveiled a visual version of her debut mixtape.
With her singles ‘Had To Feel Something’, ‘Girls Who Get Ready’ and ‘Hymns For Him’, Cosima showed that she has a bit of a knack for piecing together complex narratives in the space of three minutes, so perhaps it’s little surprise she’s taken a step into filmmaking.
The visual mixtape, which features four brand new tracks, is broken up into small segments representing each song. While you might think that leads to a bit of a choppy, jumbled experience, the overall haziness and darkened tone of the 28-minute film means it works as a whole, as we explore different aspects of urban nightlife with Cosima.
In a statement accompanying the new film, Cosima herself said: “I consider myself very lucky as I am allowed to frame myself in a world where women/artists don’t always get to. I learn more with each video I direct because I get to work with teams of people who are passionate and incredible at what they do.”
She continued: “A few weeks ago I was going through the Hymns For Him footage before it went into edit, when it struck me that I have all this beautiful footage but can only ever use about 3minutes of it. I couldn’t leave it on the cutting room floor so I decided to create a visual mixtape with old and new footage. I hope you enjoy it.”
