Jaguar Jonze Inhabits Her Music’s Cyberpunk World in Her “TESSELLATIONS” Video
The track arrives ahead of her ANTIHERO EP, dropping this Friday.
The latest EP from Jaguar Jonze is a deep-dive into the songwriter’s psyche, exploring topics intimately woven into her DNA—from her singular identity to her culture and heritage. At once a personal project, ANTIHERO’s world-building, electronic-infused sound also sets the release up for some cinematic visuals, which Jonze delivers with homages to cyberpunk anime staples like Ghost in the Shell and Akira.
The latest single from the project arrives today with a colorful video favoring such visual reference points over the gun-slinging Westerns evoked by the track’s twanging electric guitar. The appropriately forward-looking lyrics complement the futuristic look of the clip, with Jonze condemning the past on the track’s chorus. “It’s [about] knowing that we can’t erase the past,” she shares, “but we continue to try for the other person, to ask them to put their defenses down and work together on one side.”
