New York synth quartet Small Black have premiered a new music video for “Breathless,” taken off the band’s latest LP Limits of Desire. Directed by Nick Bentgen, the visual is made up of a number of disjointed images and clips attempting to capture the free-spirited recklessness, joy, and pain of youth.

“Josh [Kolenik] and I talked about putting together a vibrant travelogue featuring young people throughout the American South and Southwest,” says Bentgen. “I wanted this video to feel like flipping through a scrapbook of snapshots—a collage of raw, reckless moments. I drove all over Arizona and Tennessee with a small crew of filmmakers and we chased an experiential, documentary mode of production. We met kids at a rodeo in Arizona and went 4-wheeling with them, we crashed college parties in Memphis, and we got our hostess at a Chinese restaurant to be one of the stars of the video. Small Black’s music has an incredibly cinematic sensibility, and we found that tone in the kids we met on the road.”
