On a Thursday afternoon like this one, we can’t help but imagine what the weekend has in store. Elizabeth Harper, frontwoman for synth pop band Class Actress, helps us visualize her perception of the “weekend” with her video for the track of same name. Taken from the band’s sophomore album Rapprocher, the song is evocative of late night debauchery and punctuated by new wave contemporaries.
The video is consistent with this debaucherous theme. It is a sensual blur of anticipation and longing. Harper portrays herself as the damsel in distress in the song, but the video is a far cry from that portrayal. She maintains a dominant role with a bedroom stud, inciting us to fully explore the weekend’s potential.
