Video Premiere: Chymera "Swim Away"
- Words: Rebecca Bratburd
Here, we have the new video for Berlin-based producer Chymera's "Swim Away," an ambient-inspired live electronics jam taken from his recently released Death by Misadventure LP for Connaisseur. The video was shot in New York City by local videographer Sofian Khan and stars James Singley, a Central Park roller skating legend, in his bright-red jumpsuit and fancy skates with illuminated wheels. The protagonist of the video spends the night roller skating through the city, ultimately—as the song's title foreshadows—taking a swim in the river.
