Valentina’s delicate and haunting new single Wolves gets a beautiful visual accompaniment in Richard Forbes-Hamilton’s video. From an eerie, hesitant beginning the track builds momentum to become almost anthemic. Through flickering blue and purple brushstrokes a young boy appears, his towering surroundings disintegrate and lights explode. Half-way through, echoing heartbeats kick in like pounding footsteps and the boy runs and runs, like the truant in the final scene of Truffaut’s 400 Blows.
Wolves is Valentina’s debut EP on Greco-Roman – the label co-owned by Hot Chip’s Joe Goddard. Richard Forbes-Hamilton is a painter and animator. Let’s hope they make many more videos like this together.
