Rob Ulitski - 19th Mar 2020

Delanila laments the obsessions of the digital age, in the kinetic video for The Philosopher.

Co-directed by VFX artist Simon Villaret and Danielle Eva Schwob - aka Delanila herself - this is a blistering explosion of Internet-induced jealousy, written for anyone who's ever been envious of someone else's perfect social media life.   

Packed with cracked visual effects evocative of the perils of the digital age and its all-consuming nature, the clip races and rages towards a demonic ending, hurtling through space and time like a bullet. 

At its surface a compelling feast of visual fireworks, while at its heart an exploration of the feelings of frustration in the digital age - a sentiment that runs through Overloaded, the upcoming album on which it is featured.
