Meljoann takes on corporate labour conditions in the ‘I Quit’ video

Avatar

Meljoann’s recently-released album HR, is the only one corporate themed-album you need and the latest video from it for the drippy neon track ‘I Quit’ goes deep into the nuance of “corporate dystopia,” as the Pitchfork review put it.

Meljoann says:

“This video shows me staging a timid protest about labour conditions, to an audience of Bosses who don’t care. It also features one of the smarmiest guitar solos to ever splurt onto a screen.”

Of the album, Mel says:

HR represents the ways in which we collude with, prop up, and replicate capitalism in our relationships and inner lives.

Its underlying concept describes our economic fundamentalism as a self-fulfilling model of reality that no-one escapes from: our utility as Human Resources”.
