Can someone film videos for Katy Perry, Taylor Swift or Lana del Rey and stay sane? Can you imagine how editing that must be? All those three voices in rewind the whole time? Is there any chance of salvation after those commissions? Yoan Lemoine, also known as Woodkid, shows there actually is.
Last week the band Black Atlass released their new video for the song “Jewels”, directed by Mr. Lemoine. How polifacetic Yoan is, who’s also famous for his own music project, is enough for an standing ovation; simetries, impossible shapes, organic textures, all vibrating, all down to the beat. Audiovisual display in constant movement and dark shades, Baroque aesthetics and helmet-like necklaces that seem to bark with the song. Woodkid has got another jewel.
