Low-key electronic pop producer ticktock is based between Copenhagen and London, and also somewhere between consciousness and sleep. His latest single "Pastel Clouds," taken from his second EP Fault Lines, is a bubbling, sensual synth tune, and its video (premiering above) takes its engulfing surreal textures and runs away with them to a Brazilian beach.
"To me, 'Pastel Clouds' feels like it takes place in a space between dream and reality," ticktock—real name Sebastian Zieler—told The FADER via email. "A calm flowing in and out of everything—on the border of sleep. The video was made by my friends in Brazil, Gleeson and Luciano. I had written Gleeson and asked if he would be up for making a video for 'Pastel Clouds.' They ended up getting a whole team together to work on it, spending a couple of days at the beach outside São Paulo to film. It's a real labor of love and means a lot to all of us. Everything from color to movement and pace fits perfectly with the music."
