Video Premiere - Archivist - Same High

Check out Archivist’s cool new skate-enthused video for “Same High” 

Words: Andrew Swann 

The London electronic four-piece return with the 2nd single off their Memo EP with a video that takes you on a skateboarding tour of the Big Smoke. Watch it below 

“It’s about levelling with someone and enjoying the present moment,” explains vocalist Ed Begley when asked about “Same High”, the 2nd track to come off Archivists Memo EP.

This upliftingly beautiful tune will take you back to those warm summer months and is accompanied by a video that is just as glossy and emotive as the track itself.

The footage was shot by extreme sports filmmaker Ornella Hawthorn-Gardez in hypnotising 4k slow mo to match the aesthetic of the song. Filmed on the streets of London, the video follows two skaters as they turn heads with their fashion and tricks while cruising the streets of Camden and Cantelowes Skatepark, with a stop off for some ice cream on the way, of course.  Check out the video and listen to track below.
