In what's got to be one of the more perfect music video concepts we've seen recently, director Viktor Horváth syncs the lurching electronics of relatively unknown Budapest producer Yvein Monq with high-res footage of European women stumbling in tall shoes. Each shot of an almost-broken ankle is harder to watch than the last, but something about the way "TWUN" squeaks and scuffles in the background just works with the visuals; it's hypnotic. Just as a flat-sounding drum rattle swells into a brilliant, rubbery synth breakdown—a woman in denim and stilettos trips and rolls down a scenic footbridge. It's actually more cathartic than it is funny, like, at least she's off her feet.
