Following a week of inspiring feminist marches, the female-led commute featured in Charlotte Day Wilson’s new video for “Work” couldn’t be more welcomed.
The video is directed by Canadian filmmaker Fantavious Fritz, who has previously worked with BadBadNotGood, TOPS and Tennyson. Featuring a diverse group of women, genderqueer and trans folk descending an escalator, Fritz describes the “Work” concept as a way to “re-imagine the familiar image of people commuting to work as a moving portrait.”
Toronto-based Day Wilson has been moving to the forefront of the Canadian indie scene since the release of her debut EP last fall. Her soulful vocals and jazzy instrumentation combine to craft a lowkey ode to any kind of grind, whether the daily hustle or a relationship, while the video is a fitting nod to inclusiveness and perseverance.
