The Yannis Dimolitsas directed clip is for ‘Xenos’ – the title-track from his new album, released just last week – and it features a number of parkour athletes, including Masa Suzuki, choreographed by Rootlessroot.
“’Xenos’ was initially inspired by the genocide of indigenous peoples,” Leon explains. “The song refers to any oppressed group of people who are forced to leave their land. On a personal note, it also refers to the feeling of being a stranger to your own self.”
