Rob Ulitski - 16th Sept 2019

Billie Thomassin invites us into weird and wacky worlds full of colour and bold art direction in the video for Belgian band named after the capital of Uruguay - Montevideo.

Two shadows touch each others' tongue, a target appears between two buttocks, four heads rise from black sand piles in front of dark mountains... that's presumably the band. The visuals are bonkers, and deliberately non-narrative, a tangle of small artificial universes that fit together in the manner of Russian dolls.

Beautifully lensed by Léo Schrepel, the clever transitions and unique camera movements help keep the video engaging. Thomassin's video for the song Harry is a visual experiment packed with style over substance, and shamelessly puts aesthetic before story.
