On Sunday night fans of the HBO crime drama True Detective starring Matthew McConaughey and Woody Harrelson were treated to an epic six-minute closing scene filmed in one hi-octane take. Today brings another one-take treat in the form of the music video for New York artist Kiesza’s new single “Hideaway” out on April 13 via Lokal Legend.
Instead of shootouts between drug dealers and cops, Kiesza’s clip is all about d-a-n-c-i-n-g. Filmed in Williamsburg, Brooklyn, Kiesza starts out on the corner of N. 12th Street and Kent Ave. and bumps and grinds her way to Wythe Ave. with a little help from her dancer friends. Not only is the song (and her suspenders) pretty great, but there’s even a nice cameo from mega club Output toward the end of the video directed by Kiesza, Ljuba Castot and Rami Samir Afun.
This perfectly executed video reminds us about the importance of dance in dance music.
