Kat Graham lets us in on the video-making process for her first single Power off her upcoming debut album. The 24-year-old conceptualised the powerful video herself.

  • “I heard this song, I knew that there were different looks to how I could present it. There was the vulnerable look, the black-and-white ode to ’90s photography a la Herb Ritts, which we shot for the lyric video. And then there was this fashion brave almost costume-y aspect to the song — a more literal take and a deeper characterization of the lyrics.”

  • “I love producing, which is a fun fact that not many people know about me. So I had the idea to style myself.”

  • “I wanted the visuals to match the lyrics. I thought that there was power in being naked with your emotions. Which is why we did the solid-gold look. It took two days to get that gold out of my hair.” By the look of it, it was totally worthwhile!

  • On the breast plate with the black backdrop she says, “I worked with my best friend Alissah Brooks to create that breastplate from scratch, and we spray-painted it in my garage. Everything else was costume rental except for the headdress which is actually a shoulder piece that I created with Alissah — it’s a bunch of my necklaces sewn onto the shoulder pad that I had sewed gold buttons on to”.
