Video Premiere: Esbie Fonte “Manumit”
Today we premiere a new video from indie-pop singer-songwriter Esbie Fonte, who has been releasing a number of singles this year and now shares the accompanying video for “Manumit,” which, Fonte says, revisits a story previously started in an earlier single’s video, where Fonte played a housewife who kills her husband.
“The ‘Manumit’ video is a continuation of the ‘Ace’s High’ music video storyline, and a new internal struggle is reviewed: behind the story and below the surface the deepest meaning remains the same,” Fonte tells Relix. “‘Manumit’ for me reflects the obstacles of breaking down my own walls within the confines of my own ‘prison.’ At the end of the day I think many people find it difficult to connect with people in certain situations or experience varying degrees of social anxieties. This is just my own personal anthem to that, an ode to breaking outside of our own shells and connecting more with each other.”
