The Blaze’s New Video is a Breathtakingly Beautiful Mini Film

The French duo release the video for their new single, Heaven – watch it here

The Blaze are a French duo comprising of two cousins: Guillaume and Jonathan Alric – both of whom are music producers and film directors.

Over the past two years, they’ve released two amazing music videos, Virile and TerritoryVirile captures a moment of intimacy between two friends as they smoke, dance and sing, while Territory explores the notion of home and tells the story of a young guy going back to his family after a long time.

These videos are beautiful – so beautiful in fact that they feel more akin to mini films than music videos. Moonlight’s Barry Jenkins is a fan, and so is Romain Gavras.

Last night, The Blaze released the video (“the final piece of the triplicate”) for their new single, Heaven. While the film takes inspiration from French painter Édouard Manet – in particular his 1863 work Le Déjeuner sur l’herbe – it’s apparently “open to interpretation, for everybody, equally”.

Watch the video and check out an exclusive selection of stills from it below.
