Silencio, Laetitia Sadier’s second solo album, finds the Stereolab singer exploring the edges of pop-jazz. The rhythms are fluid, the melodies more so, and Sadier branches out in meditative angles as gently played instruments nevertheless make a tension-filled racket.
In her video for “The Rule Of The Game,” Sadier parallels the album’s watery atmosphere with hazy clips of sychronized swimmers. It’s sensual and strange, as much of Sadier’s work is, and as the back half of the song erupts into a psych-pop climax, the video follows suit with some kaleidoscopic visuals of its own. Watch it below.
