Video: Rationale – ‘Fast Lane’

Breaking Mad: Rationale drops surreal video for Fast LaneLondon-based producer, songwriter and multi-instrumentalist Rationale has just dropped the strange and possibly pointless video to his latest single ‘Fast Lane’.

The track itself is phenomenal, mixing ambient synths that fizzle and wash over you with smooth deep vocals and a subtle but effective bass line. And at less than three minutes, it does a remarkable job of feeling like a pop song of twice the length – while still feeling well paced and expansive.

The video, however, expands on nothing and is just weirdly surreal. It starts in a way that oozes with potential drama, feeling a little bit Breaking Bad. But as the video plays out, there’s no hint of conflict or meth. Just a very surreal journey and some dancing police officers.

Which isn’t a bad thing, but it gets your hopes so set on a dramatic journey – and what you get is more Breaking Mad than anything else. Except in this one, the police officer is the one who knocks.
