Nao: “Wait” - 3 mins 14s

An enthralling promo for Nao's latest single 'Wait' takes the body as canvas to a whole new level. The East London singer-songwriter emerges from the dark background like a modern Venus, surrounded by flowers in an oasis of colour which contains all the nature in this mysterious void. It's life, but not as we know it.

Further shapes solidify from the inky backdrop as the promo unfolds - disembodied limbs, contorted torsos, and extended necks coalescing to form a landscape of skin. Director Lisette Donkersloot brings a delicate touch to the surreal imagery, ensuring that its beauty and strangeness are kept in balance throughout.
