Nothing kicks off the weekend quite like some creepy Crystal Castles visuals. We’ve seen a lot of music videos comprised of live footage, but Crystal Castles always does things their own way, and this “Affection” video is definitely not your run-of-the-mill live footage video.
“The video for the single is an abstract tour documentary filmed after shows in Buenos Aires, Argentina (Apr 4 2013) and Bogotá, Colombia (Apr 7 2013). Alice was filmed by Ethan, Crystal Castles filmed by Chris Chartrand (the bands live drummer), and Ashley McMinn was filmed by Marc Pannozzo (long time Crystal Castles video collaborator). The footage was then stitched together in London by Stephen Agnew (Editor & Video Glitch Artist), creating the perfect visuals to accompany the gorgeously melodic and haunting single.”
