Video: FaltyDL "She Sleeps (feat. Ed Macfarlane)"
- Words: James Eaton
Not unlike his recent video for the excellent, XLR8R Pick'd "Straight & Arrow" single, New York house artist FaltyDL's playful clip for "She Sleeps," a tune lifted from his forthcoming Hardcourage LP (out January 22 via Ninja Tune), focuses on the movements of an array of appendages. But instead of twitching hands and arms, this piece—directed by David Kaplan—shows us the jubilant dances of a troupe of roller skaters travelling through Central Park as DJ/producer Drew Lustman's lush tune works out its bubbly grooves with the help of Friendly Fires singer Ed Macfarlane. It's an infectious affair, so much so that even FaltyDL straps on a pair of skates by the end.
