“New Shapes,” the single from Diplo‘s recent Europa EP receives a moody music video from teenage director Dominic Sesto, and the visual work will have viewers’ heads swimming.
Collaborator Octavian stars in the clip as himself, waking up confused on a couch, stumbling through the club and eventually taking his aggression out on a car. “You don’t show me no sign of your innocent side/Can’t see it, B, you’re blinded/You don’t realize it/And you can trust in my side, no riddles, no lies” the French-British rapper rhymes over the ambient and flowing production. The presentation is subtle but trippy, and complements the song’s sulking groove well.
“New Shapes” is one of six tracks on Europa, an EP that celebrates the European continent and the talents Diplo has encountered there. It’s evident that the Los Angeles-based producer/DJ took a back seat during the effort in order to let his partners in music shine. Watch the visual for the Mad Decent-released song below
