Videos for a Lazy Sunday: Point Point’s Life in Grey

French production duo Point Point have unveiled the short film for ‘Life in Grey’ from their debut EP Contrastive Focus Reduplication, out now on OWSLA/Record Record.

The clip has received over 3 million plays so far. The video was directed by Jodeb and draws inspiration from Generation Y’s desire to create art.

“‘Life in Grey’ is the origin of Point Point and was able to lead us to where we stand today. It was crucial for us to bring it to something visual, we wanted to get something different from what is usually seen in the electronic music industry today. When Jodeb introduced his vision of the short film he wanted to produce, we were immediately seduced. It was quite weird to realize that what he had in mind was so close to our artistic approach. A peaceful electro single, suddenly becoming so disturbing and shocking,” Point Point said in a statement.

“The song and title inspired me to create a narrative about the Y generation, about how people can become desperate about creating the perfect piece of work, the ultimate fulfillment in the eyes of others. The obsession of a promised, expected, fulfilling life. I just wanted to create a character who would push it to the ultimate limit, death as a performance,” Jodeb added in the statement.
