The singles label Green Label Sound rings in 2009 with the official video for “Big Bills” the collaboration between Chicago-based DJ/production duo Flosstradamus and Caroline Polachek of Brooklyn’s indie-synth band Chairlift.
Setting the stage in a freezing warehouse located in Brooklyn, New York, Flosstradamus and Caroline are surrounded by colorful lighting and hanging mirrors catching their reflections. The inspiration came from contemporary Danish artist, Olafur Eliasson. Director Keven McAlester explains, “For the video, I wanted to do something very simple, very mathematical–complement the song without getting in the way. We tried a bunch of more complicated stuff with mirrors, but we kept coming back to the simple things that worked. Color and geometry. My kindergarten teacher would be proud.”
