La Prima Vez uses Owain Phyfe’s song of the same name as a lens to examine the glorification of female beauty.

We ascribe such gravity to the virginal form. A divine skin of perfect, unblemished proportions. A distillation that echoes through the millenae. Women, robbed of all thought, emotion, and voice – suffocated shells.

Who would complain about receiving a compliment regarding their divine appearance? Not all that glitters is gold, and neither can the empathy of words be judged by their beautiful sound. Big praises set high expectations and people can feel like drowning in overwhelming kindness.
Outstanding beauty and allegedly uncontroversial perfection have always been a mystery and subject of interest in arts, religion and our entire human history. No matter if they are icons, sirens or queens; The exoticization, eroticization and romanticization of women glorifies them by putting a crown on their heads they actually do not want to wear.
