Emerging indie pop artist Kenzie Cates is back with a new video for “Just Ain’t You”, which can be watched exclusively via Aesthetic Magazine.
Produced by Harry Hill and Callum Gunn at Eastcherry and directed by Miranda MacDougall (Ashleigh Ball, Michaela Slinger) at Salt Studios in Vancouver, the “Just Ain’t You” music video takes viewers on a journey that loosely explores the objectification of the male form.
“We use a man who represents classical male beauty and hegemonic masculinity, to convey my impassivity towards anybody other than the person I am addressing in my song; I’m unmoved and dismissive even of him,” says Cates. “This suggests that my comparison of the man, who is “filling my glass” and “treating me “alright” by all measures, leaves me unfulfilled not because he’s missing something or is inadequate in some way, but because I only have eyes for this other guy. I spend the song pining over the other guy, chasing this other guy, etc., blind to everybody else.”
