Berlin-based electronic artist Kat Koan is preparing to release her debut EP Lustfire this August. Surviving the Golden Age is excited to premiere the video for her new single, “At Your Service.”
The video, directed by Patrick Tichy, illuminates the cold krautrock track. Koan explains “we’ve recently seen the launch of robots designed to provide humans with companionship and intimacy. With my song ‘At Your Service ‘ I’ve chosen to tackle the topic with a humorous take on it, because – quite frankly – I find it tricky to fathom the attraction of having a physical relationship with an almost-real, programmed ‘thing’.” The video features a man, Darren Smith, carrying a fembot, played by Ashus, to bar, posing her to have drinks with her, etc. The video walks a fine line between humorous and disturbing just like the subject matter itself.
