French beatmaker Superpoze has shared a video for his great tune “Overseas”, a visual reference to films such as “Paris, Texas” and “Under the Skin”. The track “Overseas”, a standout cut from his recently released debut album “Opening”, evokes a “feeling between comfort and insecurity – stuck in between self-control and letting go. I liked the idea to illustrate this with a car. A car is a closed and protective space but as the same time it’s an ongoing source of danger,” says Superpoze.

Directed by François Larpin.

Superpoze’s album “Opening” is out now through his own Combien Mille label. Buy it here.
