Watch :: Strange Boy explore 'Suburbia' in digital visuals
Words: Sam Geary
The London-based ambient techno duo Strange Boy have popped out a Friday visual for their current single 'Suburbia' which we featured last week.
Directed by BAFTA award winner Tal Rosner - with live thermal action directed by Theo Davies and 3D animation by Claudia Fragoso - the clip begins with a digital recreation of singer Kieran's home street in Surbiton, which becomes more distorted and euphoric with each pass. The second half of the song reveals two young lovers exploring each other, the thermal camera adding to the intensity and tenderness of the act.
"The video explores the monotony of suburban dwelling, shifting between an endless journey in perspective and the complex intimacies behind closed doors," says Rosner.
