Tinashe is a lost soul in her new video for “Bated Breath.” Stephen Garnett directs the introspective video that finds Tinashe playing a lost pilot stranded out in the middle of nowhere. The song comes from her debut album, Aquarius, and solidifies her boss status, as Tinashe says that the video was produced without the help of her label. In an interview with W Magazine, Tina dished on how the visuals came to fruition. “I don’t like to sit around waiting for people to do things for me,” the new 22-year-old says over the phone from London, where she is currently on tour.

Together, Garnett and Tinashe developed the idea to shoot in the Mojave Desert, about three hours from their mutual home base of Los Angeles. “It was pretty DIY,” Tinashe says, of the five-hour shoot. “It doesn’t have to go through a million people, and have a budget or a whole crew.” The video certainly doesn’t look homemade at all! Way to take matters into your own hands, girl.
