Oneohtrix Point Never – “Boring Angel” Video
R Plus 7, the new album from Brooklyn synth wizard Oneohtrix Point Never, has been cleaning up on the year-end lists, and now director Jean Michael Boling has made an all-emoji video for its track “Boring Angel.” This seems like a ridiculous clickbait idea, but it actually works beautifully, with Boling expertly using the little cartoon-face symbols to interact with the musical elements of the track and to tell a story. Suffice to say: Absolutely cathartic use of the praying hands. Watch it below.
R Plus 7 is out now on Warp.
