Belgian-Bolivian artist IMAINA presents new track Glass Box, as the lead single from her upcoming debut EP.
Using her signature melancholic sounds and lyrics, Glass Box uncovers the hidden symbolism behind the toxic ideal of love. This electropop track confronts you with the violence and the dynamics of a suffocating relationship, characterised by layered and lush instrumentation, elegant moments and engaging percussion, setting the tone for her debut EP Wounds, which will be released on February 19th 2021.
True to her cinematic style and passion of storytelling, IMAINA reveals a thrilling music video that tackles the ‘Madonna-Whore Complex’ and explores the idea that women are expected to be many things. Inspired by the intimate confidences of a close friend, IMAINA has transformed herself into a vessel to translate experiences into a strong haunting song and video.
“I feel like we all have a tendency to worship an unrealistic idea of love. We search for love and have high expectations but we dont always accept, and really want to know the person in front of us. We end up projecting our desires, wants and wishes onto the person, locking them up in this glass box where they can be admired but never truly loved or known“,she says.
As an independent artist, and her own artistic director, she imagined the concept of the visuals as she wrote and composed the song. To realize her vision, she teamed up with director and founder of APolaroidStory OUNI and cinematographer PJ Claessens.
