Human levitation is seems to be a theme at the moment, and this video for electronic-pop trio Mt. Wolf is a fine example. Very nicely shot and with some interesting graphic perspective overlays of grainy lo-fi film, Directors Jean-Philippe Blunt and Thom Humphreys have added an interestingly eerie element to the band’s fusion of minimal electronics and powerful vocal. To boot, there’s some clever scenes with pyrotechnics!

The duo say that “prior to shooting, vocalist Kate Sproule commented on the ‘undercurrent of weariness’ pervading the song; a search for ‘some quiet amongst turmoil and letting go.’ Our exploration on floating, on escaping the urban surrounds, touches on this theme, whilst also attempting to unite two seemingly disparate elements: the ethereal and the terrestrial.

“The graphic stencil provided a space for formal interplay between these two elements. A spatial and textural intermediate between light and surface, high end digital and analog VHS.”
