Telekinesis premiered their new video for "Empathetic People" from their recently released album Dormarion at NPR Music.
NPR describes the video as a "curious glimpse into one of the last gasps of industry keeping music tethered to the physical world."
Directed by Patrick Stanton, the video features Telekinesis frontman Michael Benjamin Lerner working in an abandoned factory. Stanton told NPR, "I liked the thought of Michael being a bit of a hero by dusting off a defunct factory and putting some life back into it. has such a great driving rhythm and a mysteriously dark feel that I knew it would be perfect for this visual concept."
