Lawrence Rothman and Kristin Kontrol have collaborate with Floria Sigismondi for the visuals of their new single “Jordan”. The track is taken from Lawrence Rothman’s new album titled The Book Of Law which drops on October 13 via Downtown/Interscope Records.
Floria Sigismondi is a veteran video director. During his long career, he has worked with David Bowie, Björk, Marilyn Manson, and Justin Timberlake, among others.
The visual for “Jordan” is extremely artistic and surreal. The composition of the images is researched and eccentric. The diversity and originality of the different characters are very interesting. The video challenges the idea of being different and feeling disconnected from society because of your personality or body image.
Speaking about the visual, the artists said “The video explores, in a metaphorical way, the idea of feeling disconnected from the world and alien because of the way I looked or acted and dressed. Being trapped in a suburban hellhole that looked down upon anyone who wasn’t the typical cookie-cutter American son or daughter. It may sound corny or whatever but this was when I was 10 or 11 years old… I used to decorate my bedroom as a as space shuttle and it was my “escape room/route”.
