An aesthetically-pleasing, astonishingly-simple and thoroughly captivating video from a duo I rarely check for.

What I’m liking about this new electronic stuff coming out is that it isn’t all 10-minute, overly pretentious rubbish. It’s regular length, concise and effective. This is a great track that fans of recent Crystal Castles stuff will enjoy.

This video is stunning though. Fantastic work. It’s done by a chap named Flat Nose George, who you can check out here.

Audio is available here.
