Last month, Sydney electronic trio Holy Balm released It’s You, an LP’s worth of distressed beats and teetering synth lines, via local scene stalwarts R.I.P. Society and Los Angeles’ Not Not Fun. Today, they’re unveiling a pretty unusual video for album cut “Losing Control” by Sydney new media artist Ella Barclay, who’s grafted the heads of band members Anna John, Emma Ramsay and Jonathan Hochman onto a trinity of floating, clam-like enclosures. Behold as they idle about a star-studded digital screensaver background for the duration of the dance track, and observe how the absurdity of the graphics is strangely well suited for the chanting, stone-faced delivery of the singers.
