Bastille have shared a futuristic new video for “Thelma + Louise.”
The Balázs Simon-directed video comes packed with a balance of live action shots filmed in Serbia and animation. The new clip follows where the video for “Distorted Light Beam” ends. British actress Remmie Milner stars alongside Bastille frontman Dan Smith.
“The concept gives Bastille the opportunity to poke fun at the way these companies appeal to us and appeal to the world, and advertise themselves and talk about themselves, and take themselves really seriously and earn huge amounts of money whilst taking all our data and more,” Smith explains of the video.
Watch the video for “Thelma + Louise” below.
“Together, they escape their reality and journey into their innerverse for a more hopeful future, and it continues to tell the story of Future Inc. and ‘Futurescape’ technology, teasing at what’s to come from Bastille’s forthcoming new album,” a statement explains.
Back in June, Bastille released “Distorted Light Beam.” Dan Smith and co. premiered the track on BBC Radio 1 as Annie Mac’s Hottest Record.
“For us ‘Distorted Light Beam’ soundtracks dancing through some twisted, euphoric futuristic club space,” Smith explains of the song. “It’s a song about limitless possibilities – which isn’t something any of us actually have in real life right now, so it’s been fun to explore that idea while experimenting with new sounds in our music.”
