On his previous EP 'Cundo', masked producer Brolin gave prominence to his proclivity for naming songs after different cities. Following NYC, Lisboa, Reykjavik, the Londoner unveiled Nightdriving last week, the lead single from his debut album 'The Delta' after some time away in the shadows, and gaining inspiration from 3:00 AM coffee highs.
With the latest video for Nightdriving (premiering below), Brolin can now scrape Berlin off the scratch map hanging on his wall. Collaborating with Dry Lunch Productions, Brolin opted to shoot the clip in Germany, favouring the influence of Berlin's ghost stations, and a distant land to personify the mournful dystopia in his native London. "The video imagines cyclical patterns and looping processes we experience as we escape into slumber," Brolin says in an email provided to Dummy. "I love Berlin, especially around the Rosenthaler Platz area, and the industrial backdrop of the city reflects the feeling of menace within the track."
Watch the video for Nightdriving below. Brolin will hold an album launch party at Ace Hotel on November 3rd, as part of the Community festival – details can be found here.
Brolin will release 'The Delta' on October 30th through Megastomo (pre-order).
