Poté ft Damon Albarn 'Young Lies' by Alex J Corona

Rob Ulitski - 31st Mar 2021

Alex J Corona directs a theatrical promo for Poté, featuring Damon Albarn of Blur and Gorillaz fame. 

The video opens with the artist stepping out of a vehicle, visiting a makeshift theatre stage on the side of the road. 

He takes a seat, and watches a choreographed dance on stage, which is cut short when two thugs come and drag the performer off-stage. He takes their place, and attracts a stream of different people, who all sprint to have their own moment of freedom in the spotlight. 

The track is an abstract, haunting perspective on society at large, which switches from a scathing polemic on politicans through to regret on past behaviours - and the video itself has plenty of visual iconography to dig into.
