Premiere: Tunde Olaniran ‘The Second Transgression’

Nigerian-American artist Tunde Olaniran‘s “The Second Transgression” serves as a visual accompaniment to his upcoming EP of the same name. In the video, Tunde’s electro-tinged tracks “Kill Or Be Killed” and “Sun Goes Down” soundtrack an experimental excursion into the rituals that play out between lovers and friends.

“We wanted to find a way to show the inherent conflict and potential for fear and violence that exists during any deep changes, whether personal or societal,” Tunde explains, “I’ve always been interested in traditions of voodoo and wanted to invoke the imagery associated with trance and possession as a metaphor for personal growth.” For more on Tunde read our in-depth interview with the artist.
