Producer Lewis Roberts aka Koreless shares a new music video for “White Picket Fence,” directed by his friend and collaborator FKA twigs. The video was shot in the English countryside and sees Koreless fishing alongside a Lamborghini and a group of feral, gothic ravers.
FKA twigs says of directing the video, “Lewis is not only a dear friend of mine but also one of my favourite collaborators. His sonic palette is equally as alien and other worldly as it is grounded and in me it evokes feelings of being close to nature. For Lewis’ video I wanted to create this in a visual. The mystery intertwined with a feeling of familiarity. The “White Picket Fence” visual is a modern day reenactment of a fable that doesn’t exist. Each character represents a sound in the music and the audience is a voyeur as the music is personified into a mystical happening. This is my first time directing a music video for another artist, I am so grateful to Koreless and Object & Animal for the opportunity.”
With Koreless adding, “twigs and I have spent a lot of time in the studio recently, I’ve got an enormous amount of respect for her as a musician and visual artist. I’d always loved how she brought her songs to life with her visual insights, and when she came to me with an idea for “White Picket Fence” it was a no brainer. “White Picket Fence” is one of the most precious songs on the album, but I trusted her to have full control and love the result.”
Koreless’ much-anticipated debut album Agor is out now via Young. An album over five years in the making, there is an idea of hidden depths suggested by the title of Koreless’ debut album. Agor is a word for open and it’s an apt name for a recording which exists at sensory thresholds, helping guide the listener from one realm to another less visited. It straddles various worlds of dance, ambient and contemporary classical while not sounding like an example of any of them.
