Premiere: New Télépopmusik Chatroulette-style Video for “Fever”

More than 10 years after releasing hit single “Breathe“, French trip hop duet Télépopmusik comes back with a video for their song “Fever”, from the Fever/Try Me Anyway EP. The song features Betty Black who sings about a quite dark everyday life “Lonely days, drunken nights”.

Télépopmusik decided to make two videos to illustrate this electronic ballade. The first one directed by Lou Chaussalet, follows an afterlife experience, and the other one directed by Michaël Borras (aka Systaime), is an alternative version that we premiere here on Konbini.

This second video is like a dive into internet and the social network, but most seemingly into Chatroulette. Some shots are clearly NSFW. Michaël Borras explains that the video is ” a metaphor for desire, explored through experiencing a fantasy love story and captured on the Internet”.
