Marlon Chaplin’s New Pastel Video ‘Slipstream’ Out Now!
Marlon Chaplin’s new music video ‘Slipstream’ is a seamless visualization to his single, which is exactly what we’ve come to expect from this eclectic artist.
Singer/songwriter Marlon Chaplin from Toronto, ON made a name for himself in 2018 with his debut EP ‘Wanderer By Trade’. Now an active member of the independent music scene he has been steadily releasing music since then, even through the pandemic. Including his debut full length ‘The Circle’ in 2018 and some of his more recent work including his latest record ‘Synestalgia’.
His single ‘Slipstream’ is the most recent to get the music video treatment and it doesn’t disappoint. The music video itself (directed by Chaplin and Michael Griggain) features the artist in a pastel coated room singing to the camera. At the end of the video we see the artist seemingly drowning in the tv in the background. I won’t go into too many details but serving as a visual companion to the track it’s clear Chaplin is in some sort of a waiting room to transition into the afterlife. As the room is slowly pulled apart out of frame, Chaplin slowly realizes his time to express himself to who he is singing about is coming to an end.
We here at Dropout Entertainment have interviewed Chaplin in the past and he once described seeing music visually and being able to take a step back and see the whole “painting”. ‘Slipstream’ is a great example of this. It visualizes this subdued, guitar led track really well and does so in a way that makes them seem like they were created with each other in mind.
Overall Chaplin created a video with a clear pastel viewpoint and perspective that effectively partners itself with his single ‘Slipstream’. Chaplin’s latest LP named ‘Synestalgia’ just released so it’s a perfect time to dive into his music if you hadn’t already! Go check that out and watch the video for ‘Slipstream’!
