It’s been about three years since the Denver producer Pictureplane broke us off with his great Thee Physical album, and while he’s not ready to let us know about any new LPs he has in the work, he’s just made an immersive, stylish-as-hell video for a pulsing new track called “Self Control.” Pictureplane has moved to New York since he released Thee Physical, and that’s the setting of the new video. But really, it takes place in 1993’s image of the future: virtual reality headsets, concrete-bunker raves, fingerless gloves, nose chains. Pictureplane himself co-directed it with Shomi Patwary. And it’s awesome. Watch it below.
If you make a music video that looks like Hackers, I will probably enjoy that video very much.
