Rotoscope-esque visuals meet bouncy synthpop in the latest video from the Brooklyn duo SLV.
Sandra Lilia Velásquez (of Pistolera fame, on vocals, keyboards, guitar) and Sean Dixon (drums, bass, programming) are the force behind the SLV acronym. The Brooklyn-based duo have readied a full-length debut, This Kind, which will be available to the world soon in the coming weeks. Before you experience the full album, you can immerse yourself in the creative visuals of “Heartbreaker”, the video of which you can stream exclusively below. The distinctive animation style, crafted by Velásquez herself (she conceptualized, film, and edited the video), brings to mind the “rotoscoping” technique utilized most famously by Richard Linklater in his films Waking Life and A Scanner Darkly.
