VEVO (Zhu)

Video Premier: ZHU Featuring Aluna George “Automatic”

After teasing us earlier this week with animated visuals from his highly anticipated Bone-Thugs collaboration “Hold Up, Wait A Minute”, the anonymous DJ/Producer is back with the release of the official video for his lead single “Automatic” featuring AlunaGeorge.

In cryptic ZHU fashion, the film noir starts as we follow a brunette walking slowly in seedy parts of a unidentifiable city. The dramatic buildup continues, as a car begins tailing her while watching two mysterious men swapping an envelope. The drop happens at 1.27 in this video version and the story unfolds rapidly all the way to the nocturnal sax breakdown.

The cinematic feel of this video is brilliantly executed, along with the espionage style storyline. The ending leaves us wanting to know more about who this girl is and what her destiny will be. We are keeping our fingers crossed, hoping ZHU will continue where he left off in his next video installment from the Genesis Series.
