If you've ever been in a transition with yourself, a loved one, or even your body, then you need to listen to "The Laundress" and watch the music video. "The Laundress" by Brooklyn-based singer/songwriter Gabrielle Sterbenz and the accompanying music video directed by Brooklyn-based cinematographer Fletcher Wolfe focuses on a transitioning relationship.
"Song and image come together to examine the roles we fall into when we are in a couple, how those roles obscure our sense of self, and the things that go unsaid between us," according to a press release.
Sterbenz's message comes to life in the video through the real-life relationship and transition of Brooklyn-based trans rapper Uncle Meg and his fiance Clara. Wolfe's cinematography "[allows] the audience to connect to the song's universal themes of change, partnership, and identity...giving the viewer an intimate window into the couple's struggle."
