Phosphorescent’s new video for “Song for Zula” debuted today on NPR Music. Phosphorescent, aka Matthew Houck, co-directed the video with Djuna Wahlrab. The video consists of a single slow-motion shot of a woman chained up and attempting to break free with a rock. The anticipation and anxiety felt while watching her slam the rock over and over matches the song’s theme of pain and emotional baggage.

According to Houck, the imagery is meant to be uncomfortable. “I wanted you, as the viewer, to also feel sort of chained, to feel what she must be feeling if she was trapped like that,” he told NPR.

Check the video out below.
