A stunning anthem of self-love and acceptance, REL releases her captivating new video for “Nanagrams” the second single off of her upcoming EP EVOCA-POP Side A. With bluesy guitars, steady drums, andsoft, soulful vocals, REL bares it all in this highly emotive track. The song’s deeply personal message shines a light on anorexia and body dysmorphia and the difficult task of trying to overcome it.
The visuals feature Arielle Sitrick (REL) studying herself in the mirror examining every angle. As she inspects the different parts of her body, there’s that voice inside her saying you’re not good enough. A purpled haired girl is that voice in human form. Everything she’s self-conscious and critical of gets magnified. The girl continuously points out her flaws as she touches her body tightly and pulls at her corset. "Nanagrams" shows the importance of loving yourself the way you are or face dangerous consequences.
REL has dealt with body dysmorphia from a very young age, she reveals, "I developed anorexia at a very young age (7) & struggled with it for many years. Side A tells the story of the first stage of healing – facing the problem, realizing you’ve been hurting yourself. Self-compassion is the first step towards peace.”
Creating a new genre deemed EVOCA-POP, REL's music makes the listeners think and feel with "Nanagrams" doing exactly just that. Check out REL’s poignant new visual.
