video premiere: Laure Briard – Sur la Piste de Danse
Toulouse's Laure Briard shares the new video for the exquisite title track from one of the best under-the-radar records of the year. Director Michelle Blades says of the gauzy, retro psych-pop visuals for Briard's "Sur la Piste de Danse":
"I really like playing with biggish themes and stripping them down to bare minimum effects (usually because diy budgets require) in search of the presence of the actor/musician in the video. And since Laure has this naturally nostalgic, tragically beautiful look about her, Julia (who shot the video) and I thought it'd be cool to throw up some lights, toss a little fog and get some dancers in there and let Laure's presence be the narrative of the video. In the spirit of the olden Gainsbourg, Bowie and Kate Bush videos with a little help from our friends."
