VIDEO HIGHLIGHT: RÖYKSOPP & ROBYN ‘MONUMENT’

Röyksopp and Robyn monument1Röyksopp and Robyn reveal the impressive video for ‘Monument’, another gem lifted from their thrilling ‘Do It Again’ mini-album, out now on Dog Triumph via Wall of Sound and Cooking Vinyl.

The video, directed by Max Vitali and produced by VICE + Intel’s The Creators Project, arrives as Röyksopp & Robyn come to the conclusion of their spellbinding sold-out ‘Do It Again’ tour. Watch the ‘Monument’ Behind The Scenes documentary:

Max Vitali explains: “The video is about exploring the space around you and in you and finding your own space within it all. Half real, half fantasy. The way I see film is as a hybrid of technology and emotions, and hopefully there’s an artistic vision there as well. In a way that is what Röyksopp & Robyn also do, they merge something real with something computer-generated to create bigger landscapes than possible without the help of technology.”RÖYKSOPP - ROBYN1Robyn adds: “The video for ‘Monument’ is a kind of inner journey which I think is also what the music is about. Like space in time and physicality and your own experience of your body.”

Svein Berge says: “There is light and darkness colliding and it’s all being served on a lit-up platter to encapsulate this ceremony we are partaking in. It has been influenced by the iconic imagery in 70’s sci-fi comics that we grew up with.”
