[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
