Finneas released the dark and seductive music video for “New Girl” on Monday (Feb. 4).
The Emma Sydney Menzies-directed visual follows Finneas as he sinks deeper into a relationship with a “new girl,” played by Yasmine Vega. She is revealed to be a femme fatale at the end, when she lures him into the desert and hits him over the head with a shovel — dressed in all black with red lipstick, of course.
The lyrics decribe a dangerously intense passsion, with Finneas singing in the chorus, “I wanna scratch your surface/ I wanna feel your groove/ I wanna be your needle/ I wanna lick your wound.” He goes on to insinuate that their relationship will be like playing with fire and a “stick and poke tattoo.”
The multi-taltened Finneas produced and wrote “New Girl” in addition to singing the song.
