Are you ready for a new video from Bruises?
A pandemic project, and further evidence of how creative we can be when pushed to the limits, the video was created within the confines of isolation.
The entirety of the music video was conceived, planned, filmed and produced - essentially made from scratch - in a living room with a green screen and stage lights. No real live performances or recording was possible during the heigh of the coronavirus pandemic in France - so the band had to innovate.
Director of the video, Claire Francès, created an imaginary digital stage - something between the physical reality of a live concert and a moody film noir atmosphere. All infused with the duo's signature 90's aesthetic and finished with a lo-fi analog vibe.
Without further ado, check out the seriously cool video below.
The video is for Bruises' song Tender Storm, a track released earlier in the year on the duo's very first EP Sexymental.
The EP was written and recorded in their studio in Paris. They said the project was inspired by the way our generation: both hopeful with opportunities but also increasingly aware of the world around us. We want to have faith in the future but sometimes that can be hard.
"But the idea isn’t to be all gloomy, we want to be positive and live every moment intensely," Max Sokolinski (one half of Bruises) said.

The video for Tender Storm marks the last creative project the pair will undertake before finishing off their very first, full-length album - a creative project that we're all very much looking forward to.
We can't wait to see what's next from these exciting talents.
