!! OMG, listen to this: Jamie XX’s ‘Sleep Sound’ !!


Jamie XX has dropped a video for the warped techy Sleep Sound single off of his Girl / Sleep Sound release which is due out May 5th on Young Turks. A bit about the video via Nowness:

“London-based artist and poet Sofia Mattioli was asked to create a video for the member of The xx and Grammy-winning producer of Alicia Keys, Gil Scott-Heron and Drake. During the course of one day, she danced with 13 members of the Manchester Deaf Centre with ages ranging from five to 27 years old, who responded to the movement of the artist and the vibrations in the air given off by the song. “The relationship between silence and music is a big part of what I am trying to express with my work,” says Mattioli. “The first kid in the video, Archie, was bliss–all of them were amazing. I hope this is a project I can develop further.”

!! OMG, the beautiful burnout: TRUST’s ‘Capitol’ Video !!


TRUST‘s Robert Alfons has released the video for Capitol off of TRUST‘s second album Joyland.
At first watch, I thought this must most definitely be about a babe who unknowingly snacks on her brother’s pot brownies, and then trips her balls off watching TV by herself in the basement all afternoon while her parents are out! I wasn’t far off:

“For me, the song created its own surreal world of floating dreams and I wanted to capture that feeling in the video. The goal was to achieve a slightly timeless look with vintage-style visual effects created via a combination of practical lighting effects and VFX created in post” says Alfons. Adding that the song is: “Gazing, scenic, living out the fantasy in your head. In flight fascination, and the beautiful burnout.”
