Video: Ibi Ego's "1998" [MEX]

1998. The year of Monica Lewinsky, Windows 98, Google, and Titanic. Is it also the year the members of Ibi Ego were born? God, I hope not. Because if 15 year olds are making this kind of music then I should really just stop trying for good. Ibi Ego’s album, the roman numeral’d 1998, MCMXCVIII, is a beautiful project with a beautiful teaser and, now, a beautiful video. Directed by Maurice Falaise, “1998” moves cinematically, exploring both tender and aggressive homoerotic sexuality. Between the green bodies and the strobes, the video sucks you in.
