[PREMIERE] Royaljag – Afterglow [Video]

Royaljag has just released the video for their new song “Afterglow”.

What makes this video cool is the way the lo-fi (almost VHS) vibe perfectly matches the synthy-retro style of the track.

Breathtaking landscape shots are crosscut with bleachers and tennis courts; each shot (and effects like split screens & superimposed boxes) carry a wonderfully deliberate cinematic quality that ties the mood of this track together.

In their words:
Afterglow is our Underdog Anthem. It’s us yelling out loud to ourselves and to anybody who feels stagnant in their current situation. It’s a release, of wanting something so bad but knowing you gotta work for it.” -Royaljag
