Berlin’s Planningtorock can be difficult to pin down. Just like her song, she seems to just be “Living it Out,” producing highly experiential, experimental music. Some liken her creative allure to that of Grace Jones or Bjork’s.
This video and song are dope. As far as the video: the editing effects, the coloring, and use of lighting are used brilliantly to accent the hazy mood. The song itself seems to subtly traverse genre and mood throughout the track, with elements of rock, soul, disco, electronic, and an underlying orchestral vibe. A further thrust to the uptempo track comes thanks to the driving drum work of LCD Soundsystem’s Pat Mahoney.
