VIDEO: Barbarossa – “Pagliaccio” (Dir by. Montserrat Lombard) –


Barbarossa (James Mathé) debuts a video for the electro-soul ‘Pagliaccio’ from Bloodlines, out now worldwide on Memphis Industries. Pagliaccio being the italian word for clown, director Montserrat Lombard became inspired by a vintage photograph from the 1920’s of two clowns boxing. Incorporating the look and style of Scorcese’s “Raging Bull,” with beautiful black and white and plenty of slow motion, the good clown fights his demons in the bad clown. Watch it now at The Guardian.

Barbarossa will be back in the US with Junip in October. Dates below.
