Last Night In Paris have a flair for combining music and movies. Counting as many film makers among their ranks as musicians, it’s no surprise that each of their music videos is presented like a short film and their aesthetic is considered down to a tee. On Monday we premiered their luscious new video for ‘Forest’ a sleek neo-RnB track that illustrates their collective’s collected approach to music and film. Following on from the premiere and our chat with the group’s Jordon WiFi, we got him to break down the music and movies that have inspired them most for this exclusive Mood Board.
Kanye West - My Beautiful Dark Twisted Fantasy
Jordon WiFi: A flawless album and beautiful campaign. From the GOOD Friday pre-releases to the actual album to the short film. Really inspiring.
Michael Jackson - Moonwalker
Jordon WiFi: The first VHS I owned as a child, I used to rewind it and watch it over and over. Captivated by the massive immersive visual universe Michael Jackson had created to accompany his music.
Lauryn Hill - The Miseducation Of Lauryn Hill
Jordon WiFi: An album that my mother would play on repeat at a certain point every year. So much beautiful introspection in the poetry.
Ridley Scott - Blade Runner
Jordon WiFi: Such an inspiring film filled with crazy imagery and mesmerising vision.
David Lynch - Mulholland Drive
Jordon WiFi: A weird scary surrealist dreamscape that really affected me when I was young. It had a strange ability to keep me watching even though it was creeping me out.
