With each passing day, it seems as if pop culture is rapidly reverting to the turn of the millenium aesthetics of an older decade’s obsessions for glitter lip gloss, CGI and cyberculture. That phenomenon takes precedent in LIZ’s new video for her single, “Super Duper Nova.”
Known for stylizing her career in the vein of many artists in the late 90s and early 00s experimenting with green screens and a burgeoning wave of synth-heavy dance-pop or R&B, LIZ joins the vanguard of artists such as Charli XCX and Rina Sawayama signaling a return to an earlier era’s affinity for sensory overload.
This becomes frequently evident throughout “Super Duper Nova” which superimposes the singer zooming through atmospheres to perform for a computer animated audience over cosmic-themed bubblegum lyrics.
LIZ’s latest visual venture also pushes the aesthetic to a new but growing extreme since releasing the video for her SOPHIE produced collaboration, “When I Rule the World,” that predates yet embodies the entire foundation of breakout transgender popstar Kim Petras’ career.
The unique style LIZ effortlessly exudes makes her a talent to follow, and one whose Y2K imagery is worth watching.
