Rioux has just premiered a video for ‘Halo’, the second single from his recently self-released EP Come On All You Ghosts. The Brooklyn via Detroit multi-instrumentalist and producer moved to Berlin for a few months earlier this year to record the EP.
Come On All You Ghosts is inspired by “nightlife, Krautrock, psychedelia, and the starkly contrasting energies of the dancefloor” as the press release states.
Mike Sidow directed the video for ‘Halo’ using found footage and interpolating it with images of Rioux. Speaking about the video, Sidow said “the imagery is inspired by the overall vibe and energy of the song itself. It was edited in much the same way Rioux’s music is constructed: sampling, cutting up, distorting, and piecing together ephemeral clips and meaningful images into a final result”.
Watch the video below and head over to Rioux’s soundcloud page to stream the whole EP.
‘Halo’ follows the previously released single ‘Find the Reason’ featuring Thurmon Green. Listen to it after the video.
