Nilüfer Yanya's "Thanks 4 Nothing" Video Is 70s Hallucinogenic Chic

Wide lapels, a bunch of trippy shit, and an absolutely great pop song.

It seems like kind of a given that one of my favorite music videos of the year so far would feature weird tarot-type cards, an array of pantsuits and a cult leader. In addition, it also accompanies a slice of low-key, sultry pop from London musician Nilüfer Yanya, so I'm not sure how any millennial human could resist.

The music video for "Thanks 4 Nothing," Yanya's newest single, is grainy and surreal, starring her as a person who may or may not be a charismatic cult leader, and lots of mid-century modern furnishings. It looks fantastic, and its lack of over-the-top drama compliments the mood of the track exactly; evocative rather than in-your-face, bubbling from beneath with a sense of power and pressure.

The impeccable taste on display here is yet another reason to keep an eye on this artist as she makes her inevitable ascent—and let's face it, there probably won't be a more understatedly zeitgeist-y visual than Nilüfer Yanya draped in a red dressing gown casting a hand over some magic cards this year.
