Cat Velez - 31st Mar 2015

Director Thor Brenne's video for Norwegian rapper Lars Vaular plays out like an urban performance video with strange flashes of unsettling, dreamlike scenes inside of a shadowy café. He has achieved an aggressive, threatening atmosphere throughout, giving the impression that Vaular could snap at any second... 


"The idea was to create a visual of dimmed European gangster aesthetics, especially with sequences inside the café.

"The video unfolds during daytime, without any clearly defined narrative progress in terms of a storyline – more a situational prism, where we have ended up creating a sometimes hilarious hybrid between dream and reality – with a touch of psychedelia."
