[Video] Osaka - Weights

Words: Sam Geary

Melbourne's Osaka - featured as Track Of TheDay back in August with 'Weights', a track taken from their five-track just recently released debut EP 'Manoeuvres', produced by Malcolm Besley (City Calm Down, Snakadaktal).

Now the three 20-year-olds have released a dark, foreboding video for the single.

Directed by filmmaker Hailey Hugh-Clink, the clip is as unsettling as it is strangely stunning. Shot over two days in a mysterious location, it builds a brooding, gloomy world from which Osaka can authentically tell their story via elements of interpretive dance, manipulation of the physical world, and a grime-esque aesthetic.

Frontman Edvard Hakansson says of the track: "It talks about carrying someone or something’s weight... And what would happen if you just allowed the weight to crush you? Or if you gave up on why you carried it."

Watch above.
