Come skate with Patience in her “Living Things Don’t Last” video

Debut album Dizzy Spells is out on Friday.

April 30, 2019

"Living Things Don't Last" is the latest taste of bedroom synth-pop act Patience's upcoming debut album Dizzy Spells. Recorded in Los Angeles with U.K. garage icon Todd Edwards, the song uses Clifford's cut-glass British accent to call to mind New Order's more heartwarming moments, or a more polite Chromatics. The song is a battle cry in the face of apathy from the former Veronica Falls member, and will hopefully prompt you to make the most of your day/week/year.


The video for the song, premiering above, meanwhile is filled with footage of Clifford taking a soothing and mesmeric rollerskate ride through L.A. Check it out now.

Speaking to The FADER via email, Clifford said of "Living Things Don't Last": "When I rollerskate my mind goes somewhere else completely and I fall into a sort of trance like state of content. I wanted to conjure up this feeling in the visual which acts as a simple and hypnotic companion to the song. The footage was shot from a car window and shows me endlessly skating around Silverlake reservoir at dusk."

Dizzy Spells is out on May 3. Patience plays an album launch show at LA venue Gold-Diggers that same night and a newly announced London gig at Moth Club on June 18.
