French Vanilla – “Lost Power” Video

Next week, the Los Angeles art-rockers French Vanilla are putting out their sophomore album, How Am I Not Myself?. They’ve shared two tracks from it already, “All The Time” and “Suddenly,” and today they’re releasing another one, “Lost Power.” It’s tight and oppressive, a smeary rumination of the power structures and imbalances that guide us all. “Power on/ Switch it off/ Now I can see/ All the power you had over me,” Sally Spitz sings in its chorus.

The song comes attached with a video directed by Ryan Sluggett, which layers animation on top of footage of the band performing the track live. Watch and listen below.
