premiere: watch CTM’s haunting Cézanne video
"Cézanne" — the entrancing lead single from Danish experimental pop artist CTM's forthcoming mini-album Suite for a Young Girl, due early next year — gets a subtly haunting video that complements the song's ghostly, dreamlike vibes. Directed by Sara Laub + Kamilla Bruus, and featuring shots of young dancers making their way around a dramatic winding staircase, the video is based on one of the central themes of the album, Nabokov’s Lolita. The directorial duo said of the shoot:
The video was recorded in a very old house in the old city center of Copenhagen. A group of girls and their dance teacher from a danceschool in Copenhagen made choreographies to several of the songs on the album. We came to their dance studio and was mesmerized by their beautiful moves and the differences between them, everything about them. So we ended up shooting the dances, but also a lot of material of them just hanging out at the set — fooling around with a go pro cam, looking at their phones, waiting between the dance shots.
Suite for a Young Girl is out January 22, 2016, on Tambourhinoceros.
