“Vulnerable” seems like the new “it” word, especially for Men. A lifetime shackled to the cage of masculinity is now being shattered to become emotionally available and subsequently, a “better” man. Easier said than done. On Free Myself, Alexander Vincent explores this new and potentially life-altering avenue through threads of synths and spliced waves that erupt into ecstasy. Slow, painful, and glorious, the scales tip and the old you is drowned and left to croak.
In the dramatic Anders Rostad directed video, Vincent is plunged into a tub, surrounded by menacing figures that twist and dance, frantic and nervous, until only he is left standing.
