Röyksopp and Robyn unveil their new “Monument” video today. “Monument” is taken from the critically acclaimed Do It Again mini-album out now on Cherrytree Records/Interscope. As Röyksopp & Robyn come to the end of their Do It Again tour they bid farewell with the release of their final video, for 10 minute epic track “Monument”, the inspiring mini album opener. Director Max Vitali created a weightless and timeless space by shooting on a wire based camera, drawing the viewer in on a journey of self discovery, a central theme throughout the song. The video was produced by VICE + Intel’s The Creators Project.

“The video is about exploring the space around you and in you and finding your own space within it all. Half real, half fantasy. The way I see film is as a hybrid of technology and emotions, and hopefully there’s an artistic vision there as well. In a way that is what Röyksopp & Robyn also do, they merge something real with something computer generated to create bigger landscapes than possible without the help of technology.” -Max Vitali

“The video for Monument is a kind of inner journey which I think is also what the music is about. Like space in time and physicality and your own experience of your body.” (Robyn)
“There is light and darkness colliding and it’s all being served on a lit up platter to encapsulate this ceremony we are partaking in. It has been influenced by the iconic imagery in 70’s sic fi comics that we grew up with.” -Svein Berge

The Do It Again mini-album serves as an introduction to the new Röyksopp album. Details to be announced.
