Official video release of LENNO’S ‘SYMMETRY’ remix
Two weeks ago dance music bible Dancing Astronaut unveiled the full length SoundCloud version of Lenno’s massive remix of Tropic of Pisces’ ‘Symmetry’, clocking up an incredible 85,000 listens and hitting the #1 spot on the Hype Machine Remix Chart in the process.
Now Thump, the electronica arm of the mighty Vice Media, does the visual honours with the track’s official video. Directed by Brooklyn-based artist Josh Wehle – whose previous work includes projects for American Apparel, Dazed Magazine, Fool’s Gold Records, Pitchfork, Rolling Stone Magazine and Playboy Magazine – the 5 minute video tracks what seems to be, on the surface at least, a sweet and innocent montage of young love. It is only the increasing moments of distorted confusion and shots of distress that connive to convince the viewer all is not exactly ‘well’.
With the remix scheduled for release on May 13th through Beatport on Ooh La La Records, ‘Symmetry’ is just the first in a run of singles set to usher forth from Lenno over the coming months.
