Video: Ifan Dafydd "Treehouse"
- Words: Nathan Albert
Welsh producer Ifan Dafydd just dropped his first official 12" on Push & Run last month, and he has now brought us a video for its a-side, the moody "Treehouse." Directed by Yoni Lappin, the video follows the lonely exploits of Dafydd as he moves from a graveyard to a house party, donning a panda suit in the process. After all the illicit chemicals are consumed and the party ends, the alienated, sweat-covered producer removes his mask and tells us, seemingly in defeat, "I will never change the world or any other thing." It's a moving clip, and one that makes it hard not to be invested in the narrative as interspersed, kaleidoscopic visuals mesmerize the viewer into careful attention over the course of its four minutes.
