Luluc's new video for "Tangled Heart" is a grainy, melancholy ode to New York and the city's remarkable community of artists.
In a montage of mostly black-and-white found footage, people come and go, shuffling to work or school, or wander the streets as nameless faces. They're anonymous on their own, but collectively offer a breathtaking and prosaic portrait of humanity.
Zoë Randell and Steve Hasset, the beautiful voices behind Luluc's acoustic ballads, appear as silhouettes over the cityscape. "By the window in the afternoon," they sing, "I sit and watch the kids leaving from school. Little packs falling down their backs." It's a simple, relatively small moment that pulses with life.
