Watch the New Video for Shigeto's "Detroit Part 1"
- Words: Glenn Jackson
After showing us around his studio and delivering the XLR8R Pick'd No Better Time Than Now LP just last week, jazz-trained producer/multi-instrumentalist Shigeto has shared an intensely symbolic new video for "Detroit Part 1," a standout cut from his third LP for Ghostly. Premiered on Electronic Beats earlier today, the clip is part music video and part short film, as it follows Shigeto through a black-and-white sequence in which he seeks out seemingly random strangers, is visited by a mysterious woman, and even wields a gun. The video, directed by Rafe Scobeythal, goes deep into somewhat ambiguous symbolism, ideas which combine with gorgeous shots of abandoned landscapes and occasional flashes of color to make for a visually arresting four-plus minutes.
