“The Passions,” a song off of Owen Pallett’s 2013 full-length In Conflict, is a song about forbidden desire and passions falling to ruin. It’s a stunning, spine-chilling piece work that will make the hair on the back of your neck stand-straight if you listen to it alone, without distraction. Now, Pallett has shared a visual interpretation of the track that seamlessly integrates his words and fragile arrangements with its imagery. Created by Brian Vu, it’s a nuanced and subtly sexual abstraction that he says was “filmed by friends and I in familiar places.” Watch below.
