Video: Kuhrye-oo "For the Fame II"
- Words: James Eaton
Canadian artists once again reveal their many talents to the world in this piece for the deep, skittering "For the Fame II" by Kuhrye-oo. The video was directed by underground-pop chanteuse of the moment Grimes (a.k.a. Claire Boucher) and Calvin McElroy, who spend most of the time indulging in ballet-esque interpretive dance in and around deserted, run-down locales as the track's producer spends most of his time toying with soulful vocal samples, gossamer soundscapes, and propulsive dance rhythms. Kuhrye-oo's production is an alternate version of "Give In (For the Fame)," which is available now on his debut EP for New York's UNO label.
