JES-CLOSER Video Debut On AOL
JES’ video for “Closer” is rich with all the vibrancy that’s expected of JES. From her structured outfits to her colorful makeup and signature crystal-like eyepiece, everything about her here is extravagant. At the same time, none of this takes away from what is a killer performance video. The clip starts off with JES and her backup dancers holding long rods of light. It’s a bit of a bizarre prop until you realize it’s used to illuminate the tight choreography that ensues throughout the video. “Closer” offers a great visual of lighting, mirror and camera tricks as you see JES in different perspectives. In one frame, you even see JES at her most intimate where her makeup is bare and her hair is let down. Her presence demands attention like no other, and amidst all of the dancing and different lighting, you’ll feel like you’re in a club yourself alongside by JES. Produced by Katheryne KTEE Thomas and directed by Ian Lyman and JES, this video’s message is as deep and touching as JES’ voice itself, every legacy is laced with tragedies of the heart.
