It's been the better part of a month since RL Grime inaugurated his Sable Valley imprint with a graves collaboration titled "Arcus." Today, the American producer uploaded a subversive music video for the single on which Arnaud Bresson is credited as director.
The story-driven sequence of chilling clips depicts an urban gathering of sorts in which participants perform seemingly fantastic feats. Synced to the somber melodies of "Arcus," Bresson's stripped-down style of cinematography serves as an unexpected yet fitting visual accompaniment.
RL Grime (real name Henry Alfred Steinway) released a debut EP titled Grapes via WeDidIt in 2012. His work with graves (real name Christian Mochizuki) is by no means his highest-profile collaboration of early 2019. Earlier in the month, he and Alison Wonderland revealed that they've been spending time together in the studio.
