NUUXS: “Options” - 3 mins 32s

A cleaner makes the most of what's left from the night before in a therapeutic promo for NUUXS's 'Options'. Tasked with clearing the remnants of a party in a local hall, the protagonist decides she's merely fashionably late to this particular knees-up.

As the cleaner quaffs leftover wine and showers confetti over herself, pop-noir songstress NUUXS addresses the camera in a pink haze. The duo are worlds apart, yet boundaries melt away to the beat.

Their contrasting styles - one gradually coming out of her shell, the other tight and assured - is handled well by director Aella Jordan-Edge, who also delivers her own distinctive slice of escapism.
