Art Department are two individuals who, separately, have collected worldwide acclaim. But together they have polished an innovative sound that blends each of their own distinct musical approaches into something untouchable. Nowadays, attaching Art Department's name to anything can generate a substantial buzz. 

Jonny White and Kenny Glasgow of Art Department recently teamed up with us at THUMP to produce the music video for their emotive track "Catch You By Surprise," off their sophomore album Natural Selection.

The video is a spectacle of stark, moving lights and striking silhouettes. As Kenny's raw vocals waft through the track, the mysterious girl―whose piercing red hair seems to constantly shield her identity―dances life into the prolonged beat. The video's simplicity is a perfect complement to the song's poignant lyrics and the tender piano chord reprisal lets the song teeter-totter as both an acoustic ballad and a club-happy tune. 

Watch the artful video above.
