There’s a lot of ways Disclosure’s new clip could be described. From a story about a dark affair, the closing in of a jilted lover, a violent and elemental revenge; or, as Lorde sums up nicely on her Twitter; “One of my life goals has always been to one day play a hitgirl who pretends to seduce then burns alive douchey boyfriends“.
‘Magnets (ft. Lorde)’ is taken from Caracal, the upcoming new album from Disclosure that’s out this week. It’s the current Feature Album on Triple j and sitting in the Top 5 of iTunes in 22 countries (including #2 on the Australian iTunes), so I guess it’s a pretty big deal. Through the glitz and glamour of the band’s collaboration, ‘Magnets (ft. Lorde)’ is a swirling and impulsive clip set amongst hyperreal blood moons, burning swimming pools and mirror-reflected dance scenes.
