In Lindstrøm’s animated “Closing Shot” video, a child skydives into the bizarre cosmos of his dreams. Dressed in bunny pajamas, the boy drifts through the blue sky, encounters alien spacecrafts and shape-shifts into teddybears and rubber duckies. The clip shifts away from the pleasant reverie with its unnerving climax: a group of office workers monitor the dream activity on computer screens.
“I wanted to make something that could stand alone as a piece of work aside from the context of just listening to the music,” director-producer Oliver Clegg said in a statement. “So whilst the video strives to respect the cosmic nature of the music, there is also a more subtle twist at the end that suggests a wider commentary – something one would never get from just hearing the music without the visuals. It’s simultaneously serious and respectful with hopefully some splashes of humor!”
The pulsating, synth-stacked “Closing Shot” highlights Lindstrøm’s latest EP, Windings. The Norwegian electro-disco producer will wind down 2016 with a concert at Brooklyn’s Good Room on Saturday, December 3rd.
