Joji
'Glimpse of Us'
16 June 2022 3 mins 54s

Chaos reigns in this engrossing promo for Joji's latest track 'Glimpse of Us'. What seems at the beginning to be meaningless youthful antics soon reach a boiling point, as a yearning for love and inability to seriously express emotion sit in direct conflict with each other.

It's an intriguing look at what's behind such macho posturing, with vandalism, aggression, and a general 'fuck the world' attitude revealed to be all but entirely hollow beneath the surface. Moments of despair creep in as the film unfolds, various men separating themselves from the tribe as they wonder what it all means.

Director and editor Dan Streit calls on skate films, Jackass-style stunts, and found footage horror films for his visual language here, presenting viewers with something which feels like it could dissolve into violence but ultimately mellows into poignancy. It's a fitting accompaniment to the song's piano-driven sound, bringing extra melancholy to lyrics of lost love and longing.
