Dublin-based electronic duo Contour have unveiled their latest music video for ‘Paradise Lost’, taken from the E.P. Blessed With Weird Things.
Directed by Paul Mahon (Geppetto), the video for ‘Paradise Lost’ keeps in the with the clicking beats of Contour’s music, rhythmically cutting from one image to the next while simultaneously holding on scenes when the beats pull back.
Following a dancer (played by band member Anna Doran) wracked with inner turmoil and doubt the visuals for ‘Paradise Lost’ also play with synchronicity of choreography, as the video continues and Doran’s character slowly loses grip Mahon’s direction also turns-up the tension as visual-effects start to seep into the widescreen borders around the video.
A brooding piece of electronic music, Contours sounds draws from taut atmosphere and heavy production resulting in a music that feels deep and immersive.
