Venus in latex: love, romance, and heartbreak with a man in a full-body catsuit.

‘Without You’ is achingly beautiful, relying on the faintest bits of Brainfeederesque beatcraft, vocals from Kerry Leatham, and plenty of white space to create something that is much more forlorn than the off-cut of that name.

The richly-hued video is one of the best of the young year. Directed by Nick Ray Rutter, in collaboration with Lapalux, the video follows a tragic-romantic boy-meets-girl narrative, albeit one where the boy is entirely encased in a latex fetish suit. The female protagonist is played by Natalia Tena (of the band Molotov Jukebox and the show Games of Thrones).

‘Without You’ appears on Lapalux’s debut album, Nostalchic, due out on March 25 via Brainfeeder. He also helmed this week’s FACT mix.
