Disclosure

Disclosure f/ Lorde "Magnets" (Ryan Hope, dir.)

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. 

Disclosure "Omen" (Ryan Hope, dir.)

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.

Disclosure "Holding On" (Ryan Hope, dir.)

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 f/ Mary J. Blige "F For You" (Kate Moross, dir.)

How distinctive and effective are the white line tracings that Disclouse have used on their album art, promo photos and nearly everywhere else? So much that they made an app where you can make and share your own. 

That style carries over to this collabo clip with the one and only Mary J. Blige, splitting the difference between performance piece, lyric video and animation.

Disclosure "You & Me" (Luke Monaghan, dir.)

Disclosure – You + Me

Rokkit's Luke Monaghan follows up on his "White Noise" promo with this character led video for Disclosure's new single ‘You & Me’.  We follow a young couple leaving their day-to-day lives for a wild trek, drive, fly, ferry, quad-bike across Europe. Culminating in a banging warehouse gig, they experience the highs and lows of a relationship on the road.
