Chrysalis

Attention people, because Nick Rutter‘s short film “Chrysalis” is quite possibly the best music video of the year. Beautifully captured moments of adolescent life in suburban Britain, dealing with emotions such as love and hurt, and an increasingly violent element—somewhat reminiscent of Chris Cunningham. The visual and the narrative quality makes it easy to forget that all of this works as the backdrop for an all new single by Lapalux, though the music fits the mood of the film pretty good. I guess it all makes sense to call this a “short film”.

Lapalux – Without You

Once you heard the new Lapalux material, his previous two EPs on Brainfeeder only seem like a warm-up excercise… and they kind of are. His debut album, titled Nostalchic, will be out on March 26 and here’s a first taster of what to expect. Watch the video for Without You, directed by Nick Ray Rutter and featuring vocals of Kerry Leatham.
