Sudan Archives Shares Video For “Limitless”
Multi artist/producer Sudan Archives has shared a new video for “Limitless,” the track is lifted off her current release Athena. “Limitless” was directed by Femke Huurdeman of CANADA. Sudan Archives will be playing a run of international festivals, including Primavera Sound, Big Ears, Firefly, BBC 6 Music Festival, The Great Homecoming, and more.
The “Limitless” video engages with the album’s central theme of duality, itself informed by Sudan’s own experiences as a twin. Femke says of the video: “It’s about opposite elements and how, as a person, you can feel torn between multiple feelings. It’s not choosing one over the other, but it’s about embracing we all have different layers, and once you know that, you can accept those complexities. A yin cannot exist without its yang, just like you can feel strong and vulnerable at the same time. Or, you can be a vampire queen but still feel heartbroken. The dancers in the video represent the twins, dualities within Sudan, going in and out of sync, pushing and pulling. I wanted to portray Sudan as fiery vampire queen, showing clearly her dark side whilst singing about more vulnerable emotions, yet in the end both sides will make her stronger than ever.”
Athena is out now on Stones Throw Records. For her debut album, Sudan Archives opened herself up to studio collaboration, employing a cadre of talented musicians and producers including Washed Out, Wilma Archer, Paul White (Danny Brown, Charli XCX), and Rodaidh McDonald (The xx, Sampha, Adele).
