Bern house duo Mercury just released a slow-paced video for its stylish, bass-heavy title track from the recently released Man EP for Gomma. The expertly shot piece showcases the delicate coordination of Krassen Krastev, who we see rehearsing a solo ballet routine in a studio, which is contrasted by shots of more stereotypically masculine things—like guns, knife play, and a slithering snake. Later, an eerie, smoky forest appears out of nowhere, further complicating whatever notions you have had about what the whole thing means.
