Helena Deland dances with her cousin in “Claudion” video

“Claudion” is taken from Helena Deland‘s “Altogether Unaccompanied” Vol. IV, out on Luminelle.

Montreal’s Helena Deland has delighted us in 2018 with the songs from her series “Altogether Unaccompanied”. One of our favourites, the nocturnal “Claudion”, just got a visual treatment. The nostalgic video, which was directed by Bronwyn Ford and choreographed by Rachel Giles, features Helena and her cousin and longstanding accomplice Claudia Picard-Deland. About the track and the video which was shared via Pitchfork, the artist detailed:

The song is overall about the constancy of my relying on and trusting in my cousin Claudia. I marvel at how our relationship has remained essentially similar going through the extremes of childhood and adolescence and into the heavier nuances of adulthood. I have no footage of the choreography we’d make up and practice for months before we’d present them to our dads’ side of the family at Christmas, so this is a selfish homage to one of the ways we’d spend endless time around the age of 10.
