Röyksopp & Robyn Glitch Out With "Sayit"
Scandinavian electro outfit Royksopp and synthpop mistress Robyn just dropped Sayit, as part of their five song mini album collaboration called 'Do It Again.' Starting off as a pulsating, muffled track Sayit eventually transitions into delirious house coupled with an amazing glitch/corrupted visual accompaniemnt that's hard to look away from. The speak and spell vocals mixed with Robyn's very own smooth vocal accompaniment create an unsettling narrative about an unlikely love connection.
As the visual corruption builds up to a fever pitch, everything eventually ends with a visual bang of melting characters and pixelated dissonance. While the music video was directed by Sandberg & Timonen and Kacper Kasprzyk, Sayit is what I'd like to imagine Suda51 would come up with if he was tasked with creating a music video for a client.
