Naoise Roo released a new music video for her song ‘Whore’ on December 1st. The controversy of the singer’s new release extends far from the title. The video features a priest writhing on the floor in front of a crucifix. The obsessive look in his eyes brings out an uneasy feeling that intensifies while he dances wildly around the church.

Considered controversial by the masses, the recording is still mesmerizing. The combination of crawling, physical contact, and longing clear on the priest’s face captures attention and calls into question connections with religion, sex, and desire. Naoise Roo’s conceptualization of these themes brings out yet another darker view of humanities drives.

Naoise Roo’s recent album, Lilith, has been revered to be just as dark and uncovering as it’s most popular single. The record has been voted the #1 Irish Album of the Year by Unsigned and Independent, a clear symbol of the musician’s out-of-the-box take on humanity as sexual and broken. Both physical and digital copies of this work can be found on the record label’s bandcamp.
