Julia Louise KnifeFist & ZISSOU drop brilliantly absurd video for ‘Synthetic Drip’

There’s something beautiful about the modern sound and rural settings of their new video.

Some of the most inciting art is shrouded in mystery, it leaves you with more questions than answers and the beauty is often in the unknown. With the new collaboration from Julia Louise KnifeFist and ZISSOU, it’s safe to say the brilliance lies somewhere between the definitively different nature of both serious and strange parts of the visuals.

Leaning heavily on auto-tuned vocals and post-ironic lyrical content to portray a warped take on mainstream pop music, ‘Synthetic Drip’ gives a visual nod to the absurdity of Australian pop group Client Liaison.

Born out of isolation, the project came together over the last five weeks during their shared quarantine. The two met in the middle sonically given their vastly different musical backgrounds.

Speaking on the new video they said that it was a pragmatic effort due to the wider circumstances and also something partially premeditated that they wanted to portray.

“When we made the single we had an idea of the type of visual we wanted to accompany it and then used what was at our disposal. It just so happened that my dad was repairing the ATV in his spare time so we thought that could work.”

On a first listen it would appear there is a wide range of influences on the track, and they later confirmed this notion.

“At the time we were listening to a lot of Bladee, Ecco2K, the new Skepta, Chip & Young Adz record and some Toro Y Moi stuff too”, Zissou said.
