"Verona's Obsession Vol. 1," the new clip from Allan Rayman, is about creatures of the night, vampires and stalkers alike. The song is all open-highway rock in a chrome sports car, and Rayman's confrontational vocal delivery adds a sense of urgency to Gabriel Adelman's visuals. His barks encourage us to interpret the mysterious relationship of Rayman and his fan, from the unwelcome propositions to the arguably dream-sequenced bloodletting.
"In a celebrity-obsessed world, I wanted to show that the fantasy of fandom often has a darker reality," Adelman told The FADER over email. "I drew inspiration from my favourite early 80's music videos and films, such as 'Thriller' and Evil Dead. It's a format I've been wanting to work in since obsessively watching Much Music Video Countdown as a kid." The video's second volume will be released in spring 2017.
