WATCH | San James Shine A Light On Consent, Serial Love Oppression and Abuse In "One Hundred Faces"

Filed under: 
On Our Radar

Here's a first look at Montreal-based SAN JAMES' first music video. 

We've had her on our radar for quite some time now, covering most of her releases leading up to this day. 

We finally get a chance to lay our EYES and ears on stunning visuals for her captivating single "One Hundred Faces" - and we can't get enough. With the brilliance of Vincent René-Lortie (who directed the video), he was able to shine a new light on San James, unveiling a somewhat different atmosphere for the music. 

The video tackles, with a good balance of boldness and caution, the issues of consent, serial loving/lusting, oppression and abuse

"One Hundred Faces" is off her sophomore EP BRIDGES, which is out now.

Watch the video above. 

Something has changed. We’ve heard there’s no turning back.

With her rich and powerful vocals, she remains at ease, shining unequivocally as she reveals a more vulnerable, lucid, and human version of herself. Ladies and gents, BRIDGES is here.
