Watch Two New Videos from Actress
- Words: Patric Fallon
It's a big week for Actress, as the DJ/producer/Werkdiscs label boss born Darren Cunningham has just released his fourth LP, Ghettoville. And though the inimitable UK artist made a big splash on XLR8R last week with his exclusive podcast, he's got plenty more new material to share, including fresh videos for industrial-tinged album cut "Street Corp." and astral highlight "Our."
Directed by Riyo Nemeth, the brazenly abstract clip for "Street Corp." premiered today over on Dazed as part of Cunningham's takeover of the online magazine. Its meditative visuals fixate on everyday objects locked in still-life as light and shadow move over and around them in slow motion.
Alternately, Nic Hamilton's piece for the lovely "Our" track offers more engaging imagery, and presents a much more colorful take on his recent video for Actress' one-off "Grey Over Blue" single. Both clips for "Street Corp." and "Our" can be seen below.
