Published Aug 28, 2015On their latest album 32X, Ottawa-born, Toronto-based unit Dream Jefferson moved away from their "party-rap" label and instead embraced a more encompassing "new wave electro hip-hop" tag. The group are set to unveil a new video for "Light Therapy" from that record, and Exclaim! has got the exclusive premiere.
The song features guitar work from PS I Love You axe master Paul Saulnier, while the clip was filmed in Saint Petersburg by Igor Ustinovich & Julia Simakova — a pair of fans and visual artists whom Dream Jefferson have never actually met.
It stars Alexander Chernetskiy; shots of him staring into a fish tank, looking up to the sky and eventually submerging himself in a bath are edited to move along with the brisk pace of the track. The results are an abstract yet engaging watch, and you can see the final product in the player below.
If you want to catch Dream Jefferson live, they'll be performing on August 29 at Rancho Relaxo in Toronto.
