Having worked with other artists like FKA Twigs and Björk, it should come as no surprise that Arca opts for unorthodox visuals in his own work. The new music video for "Reverie," a track from his forthcoming self-titled album, sees the Venezuelan-born producer reimagined as a matador-robot hybrid.

The electronic track features heavily affected instrumentation further intensified by Arca's almost hymnal sounding Spanish. The video monopolizes on the song's unsettling sound by featuring the singer stumbling around a color fluctuating room with what appear to be robotic goat legs. As if it could get any more intense, Arca proceeds to grow a horn out of his crotch as his other orifices begin to bleed.

Evoking imagery of a satyr—half-goat half-humans with a penchant for physical pleasure, often depicted in Greek mythology in states of arousal—perhaps Arca is speaking to the destructive nature of his own lust, the kinky reverie of pleasure mixed with pain? Or maybe he's just trying to take the definition of "horny" to new levels.

Watch the video below and decide for yourself.

Arca's self-tilted third album is due April 7.
