Video: Sarah P. – Maenads
Sarah P. releases the music video for Maenads, the title track of her latest EP, which is inspired by the ancient Greek female followers of god Dionysus, who were known for their superhuman strength, sticking together, and fighting for their beliefs.
Maenads EP garnered love from critics and fans and has been streamed more than 1 million times across platforms since its release in December.
Maenads is a disco-inspired song about those nights that are empty of feelings. The video’s visuals are a fast-forward to Sarah’s life in Berlin – rather secluded, away from distractions. “This isolation-by-choice gave me time to process life events that had shaped me.”
The song’s video features Sarah and Sabina Smith-Moreland cast as a bird that symbolizes mental illness. The video shows the importance of coming to terms with own struggles while not letting them overtake one’s life. “I’ve been struggling with depression and anxiety for a long time, but I’m convinced that it’s possible to control one’s mental health, rather than living a life controlled by mental illness,” Sarah shares.
“Mental illness never truly goes away, but learning more about it can help understand what’s going on inside your body and mind and therefore, control it better.”
