In July we first heard astronomyy’s minimal pop song “Nothin On My Mind” and were so entranced we put it On the Record. Not wanting his vision to be watered down by another artist, astronomyy chose to direct his own music video for the song. It’s a simple narrative, following the musician as he skates down a winding road in the South of France, enveloped by a purple-tinted sunset. Plushly colored and beautifully shot, astronomyy’s fey video is accentuated by the sound of lapping waves.
On the process of directing his first music video, astronomyy put it bluntly:
“I wanted to create something that you didn’t have to decipher, and didn’t have to think about. Something that washed over you, but hinted at the journey ahead. It’s like a music video, but without all the magic bullshit.”
“Nothin On My Mind” can be found on astronomyy’s wonderful new EP, There For You, which he released in July through his own label, Lunar Surf. -- unrecorded.mu
