Helena Deland and Her Cousin Show Off Childhood Dance Moves in "Claudion" Video
Published Oct 29, 2018Montreal singer-songwriter Helena Deland recently released Vol. III & IV in her Altogether Unaccompanied series, and now "Claudion" from that set has been given the video treatment.
The clip finds Deland and her cousin in a retro-styled house, mirroring the nostalgic sentiment behind the song.
"The song is overall about the constancy of my relying on and trusting in my cousin Claudia," Deland said in a statement to Pitchfork. "I marvel at how our relationship has remained essentially similar going through the extremes of childhood and adolescence and into the heavier nuances of adulthood. I have no footage of the choreography we'd make up and practice for months before we'd present them to our dads' side of the family at Christmas, so this is a selfish homage to one of the ways we'd spend endless time around the age of 10."
The video was filmed by Bronwyn Ford and Hugo Bernier, while Rachel Giles choreographed the cousins' smooth moves.
