Video of the Week: #285: Geneva Jacuzzi – Art is Dangerous

Los Angeles-based multimedia artist Geneva Jacuzzi releases Triple Fire, her third full-length and first since signing with Dais Records, on August 23rd, 2024. It’s accompanied by the vibrant lead single ‘Art Is Dangerous‘ a twitchy and cheeky electro-art-pop cut rippling with skittering beats, gouging guitar squeals and a caoursel of synth sounds, garnished with Jacuzzi’s sense of mischief and knowing, that reminds one of early St Vincent. It comes with a celebratory video that Geneva created and stars in (alongside Peter Kalisch and Byron Adams), additionally featuring numerous cameos from a variety of artists in her orbit, including:

Weyes Blood, Jae Matthews (Boy Harsher), Mac DeMarco, Drab Majesty, Ian Svenonius, Ron Athey, King Woman, Seth Bogart, Twin Shadow, Izzy Glaudini (Automatic), John Carroll Kirby, Patriarchy, Sextile, Riki, Dynasty Handbag, Tempers, Kontravoid, Cooper B Handy, Chris Coady, Iggy Gonzalez, Nick Aguayo, Nour Mobarak, Josh da Costa, Donzi, Romy (Romy Hoffman), Diva Dompe, Toucan, Thalia Mavros, Nedda Afsari, Skylar Kaplan, JJ Stratford, Mira Billote (White Magic), Cate Kennan, Isabella Behraven, Mike Long, Renee Clark, Emily Anderson, Roderick Edens, Andrew Briggs

Geneva Jacuzzi shares: “This video is about artists… of all different mediums. Musicians, performance artists, painters, filmmakers, photographers, writers, video artists. The community I come from is quite special and full of incredible friends and people who motivate me. I’m a solo artist but I cherish my community of people who inspire me and wanted to share this debut with everyone.”

Since first splashing on to the Southern California circuit in the mid-aughts, Geneva Jacuzzi (née Garvin) quickly cemented herself as the queen of the Los Angeles underground. Her immersive and unhinged multimedia performances are the stuff of legend, a psychotropic gallery of masks, costumes, confrontation, and massive art installations. The arrival of her third official full-length, and Dais Records debut, is cause for such celebration. Triple Fire vividly expands and crystallizes Jacuzzi’s signature fusion of midnight melody and mutant aerobics across a 12-track hit parade of wildcard synth-pop and sly post-apocalyptic camp.Her enthusiasm for the album is as bold as her body of work: “Halfway through, we started calling this the record of the prophecy, the record that’s going to save mankind.”
