Since their historical Eurovision win it’s been almost impossible to escape Måneskin (named after the Danish word for “moonlight”). Whether it’s in the news, on TikTok or on multiple playlists across streaming services, the Italians are flaming hot right now.
So their new music video for song “I Wanna Be Your Slave” couldn’t have come at a better time, capitalising off all their success and making one hell of a visual statement.
Directed by the lauded Simone Bozzelli, whose short film J’Adore won the 35th International Critics’ Week at the Venice Film Festival, he continues his signature narrative of investigating power relations and struggles when it comes to the sphere of desire and relationships.
Dropping us inside a voyeuristic loop where any forbidden desire matches a little sacrifice, the video is paced through images that are always rotating and in constant motion, making extensive use of fisheye, peepholes and transparencies.
