David Knight - 9th Dec 2015

After we end relationships, we carry the echo of those old relationships around with us, when we start new ones. That's the essential idea of LAMAR+NIK's return to music video action with French chanteuse Schérazade's L'Amour Á Plusieurs – which loosely translates as 'making love to multiple people'.

As Schérazade prepares for a first date, we get a hint of these former lovers, but as the big moment draws close their presence becomes much more obvious...

LAMAR + NIK:

"We interpreted the lyrics to mean 'having sex with a lot of people seems fine at first, but eventually you'll catch feelings'. With that general outline we decided to make a story that metaphorically deals with relationship baggage.

"After every past relationship and upon entering a new one you always have the memories of your exes floating around. We all have baggage from past relationships and sometimes it gets in our way of forming new ones."
