#XI "Retrogrades" (video)
Published May 20, 2014Mysterious hashtag enthusiasts #XI have just a few songs to their name, and now the self-described "#normcore" duo have given one of them a video.
"Retrogrades" gives crackly, vintage-sounding samples a modern trip-hop twist, while the accompanying video is an extremely stylized affair that mixes shots of a woman dancing with trippy effects and layered images. It's not fully black and white, but the muted palette adds to the restrained mood.
