Play the Voyeur with this Tender Couple in Tiny Deaths’ “Us”

City life makes voyeurs of us all — our windows face other windows, our walls are thin, lives are lived a breath apart. That’s the feeling you get from Tiny Death’s new video for the song “Us,” off of their upcoming sophomore LP. The video features a real couple in their own Brooklyn apartment living their everyday lives — with just a dash of dance.

“Moved by their affection for each other, I approached Ellie and Eddie for a narrative collaboration some months back,” director Allegra Oxborough tells TIDAL.  “We captured bare vignettes of intimacy, illuminating moments of shared vulnerability. Their tenderness is seen and felt through voyeuristic glimpses, and through each other’s eyes.”

Tiny Deaths is the Minneapolis, Minnesota, and Brooklyn, New York-based dream-pop band featuring vocalist Claire de Lune and producer Grant Cutler. They released their debut, Elegies, in 2017, introducing their brand of R&B-tinged electronic music to fans of POLIÇA, Beach House and Purity Ring. De Lune calls the upcoming LP a “youth anthem for the apocalypse,” a description that has us counting down the days until the end of the world.
