We once again had a few great additions in the visual department this week. First up is 'Shipwreck', the joint single of Modeselektor and Thom Yorke, released today. Directed by Tony T. Datis, the track's video is about a young boy's struggle for survival in a post-apocalyptic world. The clip's dystopian gloom and surreal imagery brings up memories of Tarkovsky's 'Stalker' and certainly fits the song's eerie vibe.
Another stunning work comes from Berlin-based electro pop outfit Notic Nastic, who have had their sophomore album, 'Fullscreen', released in collaboration with Shitkatapult this week. Natalie van Sasse van Ysselt has directed the video for the album's lead single, 'Cyanide', which places the group's singer in a nightmarish origami jungle of constructivist geometry.
The third and final video of our roundup likewise explores a constructivist theme, albeit in a more abstract fashion. Austrian visual art collective Depart has created the video for Zanshin's 'Umps Unzin', fresh of his debut album 'Rain Are In Clouds' released on Affine Records this week. In perfect sync with Zanshin's glitchy electronica breaks the video is an intricate choreography of dissolving, intersecting, warped and twisted geometric objects. Beautiful and intriguing - not just for math geeks.
