Any Insane Clown Posse fan can tell you that magnets and the reason why we're attracted to certain things is beyond comprehension. So it's possible that Lorde can't explain why she fell for the philandering Hills douchebag at the center of this story, but you can be damn sure she knows what she's gonna do to him when she finds out about the other women in his life.
Here we are, two weeks later from the action seen in "Holding On" with director Ryan Hope continuing the sci-fi storyline that looks to bridge all the videos from new Disclosure album Caracal. An equally important milepost is that we're nearly three years on from "Latch," the Sam Smith and Disclosure collaboration that played a monumental role in both artists rocketing to fame. This reunion is sexy and slinky, as is the video, which doesn't get overly concerned with advancing the plot and choosing to focus on Smith in the midst of a dancefloor that approaches the vibe and scale of the Matrix Zion Dance Party.
The first chapter of Disclosure's Caracal saga (and sophomore album) begins proper after the recent teaser with our introduction to a woman who appears to have Sixth Sense powers - combine this with some Mexican voodoo in a land where it appears, as Zach de la Rocha once rapped, "who controls the past now controls the future" (oh, and some Orwell guy, too).
The Lawrence brothers say that every song on the album may get a video that connects all of them. In fact, "Holding On" is part one of four videos making up a short film from director Ryan Hope. Needless to say, I think all of us here at VS are intrigued with what lies ahead.
Disclosure will go wide-screen on new album Caracal, teaming with director Ryan Hope for an album trailer looks like a futuristic action-adventure-art film and is hopefully just a tease of what's to come...
Making a video for director/musician Yoann Lemoine aka Woodkid sounds like way more pressure than most jobs. Director Ryan Hope handles it perfectly, however, delivering short films for Absolut that celebrate the artistic proces with Wookid, graphic novelist Rafael Grampa, designer Yiquing Yin, and digital artist Aaron Koblin.
