Robyn enlists SSION to direct new video for ‘Between The Lines’

New Sounds: SSION describes the DIY clip as 'intimate, messy, sweaty, silly and slightly voyeuristic' -- and we are all about it


Robyn just got done blowing out minds eight ways to Funday with her riveting March performance at Boston’s House of Blues, so we need no reminders on how she likes to party. But that’s not stopping the Swedish electro-pop queen from taking us back into the good times, enlisting SSION (a.k.a. Cody Critcheloe) to direct her new Ibiza-filmed video for “Between The Lines”.

The clip involves a Jeep, a heatwave, and a video vision inspired by Wham!’s “Club Tropicana”. SSION has a few words to describe the video, which you can watch below, as “intimate, messy, sweaty, silly and slightly voyeuristic.”

SSION elaborates, stating: “Robyn is one of my favorite artists to collaborate with and making this video with her allowed for a lot of playfulness in embracing the extremes of being in a place like Ibiza… the aggressive tackiness of tourist culture slapped up against the serene beach vibes… it reminded me of when I first started making videos on a mini dv camera — no pretense, DIY, run & gun… just being in the moment. We also wanted to keep the edit rude and leave in a lot of the in-camera audio of us giggling, talking & screaming — just a complete disregard for pop music video formalities to create something that feels very fun and alive.”


We all need that kind of vibe.
