Clipping. 'True Believer' by Carlos Lopez Estrada

Clipping. 'True Believer' by Carlos Lopez Estrada

Carlos Lopez Estrada's winning streak of simple continuous-take visual collaborations with Clipping. gets another installment with 'True Believer'.

Clipping.'s now Hugo Award-nominated concept album about a slave rebellion on board a space ship has had some interesting gravity-defying visuals in the past, but this one is fantastic in its simplicity. A New York Street scene becomes the setting for an astronaut – the track's guest vocalist Paul Outlaw – floating listlessly into outer space, occasionally chiming in to lip-sync his part. The slow creeping of his ascent is a sinister visual accompaniment to the ominous drones of the track itself.
