Some videos need production budgets and a bunch of shit exploding to keep you watching. Mendoza's such an engrossing character that just watching her perform her tune in the self-directed video for "Houdini" is entertainment enough. The tune is a piano-house number about ditching a disposable lover and it melds the seemingly disparate aesthetics of good-times 1990s UK house with S&M imagery. As she twirls in warp speed and glares with glowing, purple eyes, you can't help but wonder if you're looking at this generation's next dystopian pop star.
