Chromatics producer Johnny Jewel is also the mastermind behind side project Symmetry who released their fantastic Themes For an Imaginary Film back in 2011. Now, a few years later, we get the visuals to the record’s final track “Streets of Fire.” From the first grainy shots of New York City, the video pulls you in in such a powerful way that you almost have no choice but to stop what you’re doing and listen intently. But oddly, you may find yourself feeling a little uncomfortable doing so- between the hauntingly raw vibe of the track and the home video style images, the clip is so intimate it seems as if you stumbled on someone’s personal footage; like you shouldn’t be watching it.
But you should. Multiple times.
