Music video[edit]

Development[edit]

The music video for "I Feel Cream" was directed by Kinga Burza. In an interview with PromoNews, Burza explained the appeal of the video despite its low-budget:

We were particularly restricted on this one budget-wise [...] It's a video that really gained a lot from Peaches' ability to express herself in dramatic metallic shoulders, cut out leotards and thigh-high, lace up Louis Vuitton boots, taking you back to those early but exciting Bowie videos that were merely a wonderful performance of a red-headed David against a white wall wearing blue shadow. I knew if we were forced to go minimal, we were best to make a statement![2]

Synopsis[edit]

In the video Peaches wears a variety of outfits, both futuristic and retro. Her lips are painted gold and she sings and dances as a variety of colors, shapes, and special effects flash across the screen.

Release and reception[edit]

The music video for "I Feel Cream" premiered on XL's YouTube channel on October 15, 2009.[3]

Promo News described the music video as "hypnotically gorgeous, with experimental camerawork, projections, and vision-mixing."[2]
