“I feel like there’s an American standard of what beautiful hair is, and I wanted to show in this video that’s not what all beauty is,” Archives says.

Sudan Archives’ use of reverb in “Selfish Soul” makes the song feel all-encompassing. She makes apt use of the sonic space, declaring her truth before it dissolves into an endless echo.

Sudan Archives shared her thoughts about the track in a press release.

“I feel like there’s an American standard of what beautiful hair is, and I wanted to show in this video that’s not what all beauty is; to showcase different hairstyles and different types of women and their hair,” she says. “I was inspired by India Arie‘s ‘I Am Not My Hair,’ one of the first songs I heard about this subject. She talks about extensions and weaves and natural hair and nappy hair, and that she’s not her hair; she won’t conform to the comparisons that would come up if you had a weave or sew-in or natural hair or Afro – that doesn’t represent her.”

Sudan Archives will perform at several festivals this year, with dates below.

Check out “Selfish Soul.”
