Katie Stelmanis of Austra said of the video: "A night vision camera captures life in a dark park. Among the hidden corners and leaf-covered hideaways, people purge and absolve their sins through sexual liberation. We highlight a romance between a man and a woman who seek forgiveness from each-other: the only forgiveness that is of any importance."

It was directed by Claire Edmondson. Take a look below.


Watch: Roosevelt Premieres Music Video For "Montreal"

Cologne based electro-pop singer, songwriter and producer Marius Lauber aka Roosevelt, premiered a new video for his brilliant disco pop tune "Montreal", off their debut EP 'Elliot'.

The track is part of  our current playlist and is one of our favourites from the EP, which came out in August via Greco-Roman. Get your copy of Elliot here, if you haven't got one yet.

Previously, Roosevelt has already shared the clips for "Sea" and "Elliot".

The trippy VHS video was shot and directed by Roosevelt himself with a bunch of friends in it. "I had the idea to do a video that looks like a futuristic video from the past. What I don't like about most other new videos is their vintage approach. I'm really not into Instagram filters on modern HD material, it just doesn't look good. The Montreal video actually doesn't have an effect or any post-production on it - it's filmed on an old VHS camcorder, so it took ages to shoot and to digitise. A friend helped me to shoot and he also had access to a green screen studio. Although it was a lot of work I was really excited. I'd never done anything like this before but always wanted to try it." He said.
