Music Video: The Penelopes ‘Roses’

We recently featured ‘Mulholland Drive’ – The Penelopes first single from their new EP ‘Leave them all behind. This time the french duo offer up a beautfully Sia-esqe video for their latest release ‘Roses’.  Once again the Parisian pop artists serve us a slice of nostalgic, electro-pop matched to a set of striking visuals from the acclaimed Ukrainian director Alina Gordiyenko.
The video presents a juxtaposition of intimacy and melancholy set within a ruinous backdrop, ‘Roses’ is what Gordiyenko describes as “The personal struggle of a man who learns to accept his feminine half. The pressure of society sometimes forbids us to accept our real nature. When the boy receives the girl’s message, his trip to the core of his personality begins, searching for the clues she left for him.” Axel Basquiat and Vincent T say “’Roses’ is about instinct. “Our reality is personal so if we don’t like what we see or what is happening, the quiet little voice of truth from inside us tells us what to do.”
