Watch Skrillex’s Epic, Nightmarish ‘Red Lips’ Video
EDM star co-wrote, produced and edited Grant Singer-directed clip for GTA remix
Skrillex has unveiled the new video for his frenetic remix of GTA’s “Red Lips.” The visually stunning video finds actress Anya Taylor Joy, the breakout star of film fest favorite horror flick The Witch, battling it out against creepy, insanely double-jointed captors. Skrillex served as co-writer, producer and editor on “Red Lips,” and in an interview with Pitchfork, revealed that the video was aesthetically inspired by films like The Cell and The NeverEnding Story.
“Red Lips” marks the latest collaboration between Skrillex and director Grant Singer; the two first worked together on the video for Yogi’s “Burial” featuring Pusha T. “When you get us both in the room, our energy is so crazy and it almost shouldn’t work together because we’re both so animated and have too much energy inside us,” Skrillex told Billboard. “He’s probably my favorite director I’ve worked alongside with, because of how freeing it was for us to be able to try everything we want to try, and there was no ego.”
