VIDEO PREMIERE: BAUM – “HOT WATER”
West coast, hair breezing, alt-pop storyteller BAUM‘s new music video for her song “Hot Water” is a straight-to-the-heart electrifying fairytale to accompany the inextinguishable song. The video is a peak climbing coming of age story between two young women who wave in and out of sexuality and the constructs of a relationship. For BAUM, it was important for the video to portray a non-heteronormative relationship to further the voices of LGBTQ community in the media.
Through her music and lyrics, and angsty howls she encapsulates her experiences as a young, queer woman in the most honest way possible.
“For me, I wanted the video to be a romanticized but somewhat realistic depiction of how it feels to be scared and inexperienced, but also craving intimacy. The inspiration came a lot from how I felt in high school and things I did when I was around 16 or 17.
