Kim Petras is getting downright chilling in her just-released music video for “Icy”, the latest track from her album Clarity.
Loaded with cool visuals and a blue-hued colour palette, the video finds the 27-year-old pop star at one point entering a glittering ice bath.
“I wanted the visual to feel fresh and signify becoming a stronger version of myself,” says Petras of the new video.
“The video starts with me feeling trapped and watched in a glass box, but as it progresses, I escape and evolve into a bionic version of myself through the pain of heartbreak,” she adds.
Petras, who is transgender, explained in a recent interview that she feels more fully able to embrace her identity as a transgender woman now that she’s established herself as a songwriter and performer.
“I feel like I’ve really proven myself as a songwriter,” she told Insider. “Now, I’m down to be transgender however I want and talk about it as much as I want. Because I’ve always been open about it, but now I don’t care anymore, ’cause I know I’m here because of my music.”
