Dua Saleh releases appropriately chilly “Warm Pants” MV

The ‘Nūr’ single gets an icy visual.

Dua Saleh released their debut EP, Nūr, earlier this year. One of its highlights, “Warm Pants,” has just gotten a chilly new visual.

The Psymun- and SinGrinch-produced song lets the Minnesota artist showcase their vulnerable side over a lonely bassline. And in the Braden Lee-directed clip, Saleh wanders through a snowy landscape, the infrared effects depicting them as a lone source of thermal energy in this icy location.

“‘Warm Pants’ is a story about searching for warmth after being cast into the frigid terrain of heartbreak,” Saleh said in a statement. They proceed to break the video’s metaphor down: “In the video, I shift between running across a frozen lake and moving through a sundial, fashioned from tall pillars of ice. The frozen lake signifies the expansive reach of this love story. The pillars represent a state of limbo. I feel trapped in time repeating the same cycles and collapsing into a state of agony.”
