“In the new video for her track “Never Enough,” singer, songwriter and producer Oyinda lies on the ground and vogues in a circle of flickering television sets. She wears a sheer black bodysuit, her hair pulled back into a thick fishtail braid, as she crawls on the floor, arches her back like a cat, and stares at the camera. “You can never get enough of a good thing,” the London-raised Nigerian singer taunts in deep, smoky vocals. “Watch me move like I’m up on a big screen.” The beat pulsates, the synths scatter, and Oyinda changes into a metallic trench coat and a silver mesh dress that glitters against her smooth skin. “The biggest inspiration was Beyoncé’s ‘Single Ladies’ video,” explains Oyinda, 24, who directed the video herself. “The strength of that performance made me want to do a seamless piece too, but in my own way — a little imperfect with a hint of sci-fi.” There are hints of sci-fi in both her video and her sound, which is imaginative and futuristic — think an early FKA twigs. Following her first record, Before the Fall (2014), Oyinda will release her next EP, Restless Minds, this June.” – i-D

“The idea for the video came through the tone and pace of the music and inspired by the beautiful photography of Ryan McGinley, with a dirtier colour palette.” Director Ozzie Pullin explains “It was about expressing and embodying a real sense of freedom and lust between two people. The whole process was a dream, buzzing around on quad bikes and watching drones fly overhead whilst people ran naked in a field. Perfect. Although the temperature could have been warmer!” — i-D
