Electro-funk duo Chromeo recently debuted a surreal video for their track, “Clorox Wipe” which is currently available to stream/download off their Quarantine Casanova EP here.
“Clorox Wipe” saw its release earlier this year as it was one of five tracks released off of their Quarantine Casanova EP, which were written and recorded under lockdown.
One-hundred percent of the net proceeds of sales from the EP’s digital downloads, physical sales, and merchandise will be donated to COVID-19 Relief. $20,000 has been donated to Colin Kaepernick’s Know Your Rights Camp COVID-19 Relief Fund plus an additional $55,000 match donation has been pledged by Clorox, totaling $75,000 in COVID-19 Relief Fund donations from both Chromeo and Clorox.
Directed by Patrick Jean, the video transforms Chromeo into paper-thin figures as they meander through Los Angeles and Las Vegas’s empty streams, eventually dancing atop a flat earth.
“It’s sort of an allegory for everything that’s been flattened since the beginning of the pandemic. Human interactions, our sense of time, our experience of space. As we’re confined to our screens, it’s all become two dimensional.”– Dave 1
“Right now, between the COVID uptick and the election, everyone’s an anxious mess. As artists with a platform, it was our duty to raise awareness around the communities most affected by the virus. As purveyors of funky music, it’s also our duty to provide some levity, to lift people’s spirits. We hope this video can achieve that.”– P-Thugg
David “Dave 1” Macklovitch and Patrick “P-Thugg” Gemayel make-up the Canadian electro-funk duo Chromeo. Since the start of their career, they have released five albums to critical acclaim and have earned JUNO Award, MTV Video Music Award, and a Grammy Award nominations.
