Published Mar 13, 2017Jacques Greene unveiled his debut full-length Feel Infinite last week, and he is now looking back to the record's title track and first single "Afterglow" with a new video.
Directed by Mauriès Matos (Melissa Matos and Emmanuel Mauriès Rinfret), the video was shot on 16mm film and features a host of characters from Montreal's club scene, in which Greene's roots run deep. On top of Greene's production sits spoken word passages from the video's subjects.
Greene elaborated on the use of spoken word in the video with Cool Hunting:
It's sort of an extension of what I get at with the snippets of vocal samples in the music. Trying to inject the music with an inherent humanity. I'm a big synth guy, but at the end of the day nothing is better than the human voice so it was kind of cool to include a bit of the voices of what the people in the video were saying to bring them to life a bit more. A lot of it was trying to be as accidental and incidental as possible, as for the poems and more focused written bits just trying to hint at these ideas of connections and other people and how we relate to one another.
Feel Infinite is out now through Arts & Crafts/LuckyMe. Watch the video for "Afterglow / Feel Infinite" in the player below.
