Diplo & Octavian drops visuals for the soothing 'New Shapes'
After the single release of this perfect connecting of musical minds: Diplo and Octavian with ‘New Shapes’. We are now delivered the the aloof and shadowy visuals.
Surely everyone’s heard this collaboration with mega-producer Diplo, and the UK’s star child Octavian - taken from Diplo’s Europ EP. It holds a fantastic accompaniment of the Major Lazer member’s intriguingly melodic timbres, with the Essie Gang affiliate’s rough and raspy vocal tones.
The music video showcases dully-lit settings of Octavian seemingly waking up after a party, and initially going to said party. Like much of what is connected to Octavian, the sound is laid back and cool; subsequently the visuals are appear to be adrift from direct emotion and connection with the star’s mind or attention. Potentially all relating here to the narrative or the track and the girl in the video.
