No one has ever made putting on a hat as sexy as Kat Graham does in the new “Impulse” music video. The Vampire Diariesstar strips down to her lingerie and invites viewers into a sensuous, black-and-white world in the minute-and-a-half teaser. What is going on in “Impulse”? Read on to find out!
Not much happens in “Impulse.” The video, directed by Solmaz Saberi with music from Hooverphonic 2Wicky, seems to be more about exploring the vice and beauty that can come with impulse than telling a straight-up narrative. And Kat, dressed only in a black bra and beat-up tights, is our guide into this world of impulse. She smokes, drinks champagne, and rips her already-torn tights while seemingly never forgetting she is in front of the camera. It makes for some beautiful images.
It’s interesting to see Kat in something so different from TVD, but we’re not surprised the actress and singer has branched into edgier, more abstract territory. She told Billboardjust last week she’s “excited to go into 2014 with these new records and a cooler edge in that lane. My single ‘Power’ was a great place to leave off in the summer. I'm ready to reveal who I am truly as a beatmaker, an engineer, writer and artist.” Perhaps this is her first step into “cooler edge” territory?
