We’re back with our weekly roundup feature! It’s May 29th and I was just checking out Summer Camp Music Fest this past weekend. Still recovering!
3L3D3P (pronounced EL-DEE-PEE) is the cryptic alias under which Los Angeles native Marina Thompson creates genre bending electronic music that spans punk, techno, and experimental pop. Today, she’s released a new video for “idontlisten,” which finds Thompson playing the role of a convenience store clerk, performing her rave-ready anthem while backlit by cyberpunk visuals. She explains the video “really brought me back to the days of being a kid and I’d spend hours making music videos on my own. I would just learn and experiment as I went along and just flow. I really wanted the essence of 3L3D3P to ring true through the visualization of this video, so I directed, styled, and handled post production of the video myself. It took a lot of time, it made me a little bit more insane, but it also felt natural. The cuts, the style, the feel of the video are fueled with my blood.” Check out the video premiere at FLOOD Magazine.
