Xenia Rubinos Releases 360 Degree Video

Consequence of Sound is premiering a new 360 degree video for the Xenia Rubinos' track “See Them.”

The song is from the album Black Terry Cat, of which Pitchfork wrote in a rave review, “Rubinos' magical voice gives each of these songs their own distinctive character and magnetism.”

The video for “See Them” features Rubinos cycling through the streets of NYC while singing along to her cross genre funk track. Viewed on an iPhone or Chrome, the clip allows audiences to navigate 360 degrees as if along for the wild ride. It’s an effect that only compliments the infectious energy of the track.

As Rubinos explains, “‘See Them’ is one of my favorite songs on the album because it feels like a choose your own adventure Goosebumps book. I was getting into watching these vogue dance battles online when I wrote it and I think watching all these super stylish dancers doing these drops in stilettos was what inspired the beats on this song. I just wanted to make something really fun and imagined people voguing to it. “

In regards to the inventive video, she says, “Director Armando Croda took the idea of this luscious song-adventure and brought it to life with a 360 degree bike ride through my city. I'm not very sporty so this shoot was particularly challenging, after 12 hours of biking and singing loudly through NYC streets. I just kept imagining that everyone around me was vogueing & dancing. Main takeaway is: ‘Where you gonna put the brown girl now? She's tearin' it up!’ I do what I want, I'm coming at you on a bike in 360 degree panoramas singing right to you! DO YOU SEE ME ?”
