Video of the Moment #2230: Roosevelt

German electronic producer Marius Lauber, aka Roosevelt, released his self-titled album back this summer. I reviewed the effort on Greco-Roman back here. I’m going to let Lauber explain to him what the song ‘Belong’ from the LP means to him:

‘Belong’ is a ’80s-inspired synth track, where i tried to bring in a slower groove than on the rest of my album. It’s the only song on the record where I didn’t record live drums, solely using drum machines to achieve a colder sound aesthetic. I listened a lot to bands like Human League and Tears For Fears in the making of the song. With the video we wanted to bring the vibe of the album artwork to life, and create a live performance around it. It was important to me to come back to the aesthetic of the album cover – as ‘Belong’ is definitely a key track on the record for me.

Watch the new promo video for ‘Belong’ below. For more on Roosevelt on TGTF, go here.
