Dream-pop outfit Elastic Sleep have unveiled their latest music video for the single ‘Leave You’ taken from the quintet’s E.P of the same name.
Directed by Emmet O’Brien, the flickering projected aesthetic and shuddering visuals meld into the harmonically rich, glistening sound of Elastic Sleep’s latest single.
Imbued with a haunting ambience, O’Brien’s direction explores the effect of light and shade on the layered visuals and stark imagery that populates this deeply evocative music video.
With the camera work shaking and focusing intently on the constantly evolving tapestry of projections and character close-ups that blend into one another, the all-encompassing sonic weight of ‘Leave You’ is given a visual dimension that perfectly convey’s all the depth and beauty of Elastic Sleep’s sound.
Emmet O’Brien and his crew visually encapsulate the incandescent shimmer of ‘Leave You’ with a brooding, slow-burning video that works to expand upon the music’s tone through striking imagery.
