Rob Ulitski - 6th Aug 2019

Mathy & Fran return to music videos with this mesmerising piece for Au/Ra's instantly hooky Dance In The Dark. It's a sensation of synchronised movement and monochromatic art direction.

The simple concept is haunting and ethereal, picturing a group of cast dancing and sprinting around Au/Ra - that's Jamie Lou Stenzel, another teenage prodigy of dark electropop - as she performs in a white infinity studio.

The close-ups of the performance are hypnotic, and the presence of just one bright colour - Au/Ra’s turquoise hair- is inspired, ensuring our focus is always on her, especially in the darker scenes at the end. A simple idea, executed brilliantly - with choreography by Alexandra Green and a fine edit by Joce Hockings.
