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.
