Parisian duo The Picard Brothers, aka Clément and Maxime Picard, have been the brains behind the scenes of a tonne of projects. Most notable is their work with Diplo and Major Lazer, specifically Peace Is The Mission, as well as tracks for Ellie Goulding, Kehlani and Jessie J. Now they're stepping out the shadows with a brand new single, "Running From My Life" — which features glistening vocals from Boy Matthews. The single dropped this time last week, and today, they're sharing the visuals exclusively via Complex. Complementing the chilled-out house vibes of the original, the Brothers put together a surreal scene shot in the snow-covered woods of Moscow that is as cool and funny as it is weird and confusing.
Speaking to Complex via email, they explained that they "really wanted to have something that looks real. 'Running From My Life' is a house song, for sure, but it's also really sad in a way. We got really lucky to find [Russian director] Vladimir Raksha because he totally understood what we were looking for and how sincere it needed to be. He came up with all these crazy ideas and concepts for this visual and shot it in Moscow, in like a week. We're really happy to have this as our first video... It kinda looks like the Russian version of KIDS."
