The video for POSTAAL’s “City Lies” provides a haunting counterpoint for the enigmatic Parisian duo’s soulful, texturally rich take on electronic music. Built around a series of stark black and white images, “City Lies” uses faces and still figures—those of featured rapper Jelani Blackman, French actress Lola Le Lann, and Pascal Toussaint, a gospel/opera singer from Guadeloupe who POSTAAL met singing at a Cabaret in the 5th district of Paris—to translate the song’s psychological weight.
The video's characters are largely cast against inky black backdrops like transmissions from an urban abyss. The end result is mesmerizing in its simplicity, a reminder of the power of the human face and sharply rendered monocrhome.
