Back in May Swedish synth-pop queen Robyn teamed up with the Nordic knob-twiddlers in Röyksopp for a mini album of uplifting and introspective album of house-flecked dancefloor gems called Do It Again. "Monument," a skittering behemoth of seductive keyboard pulses and subdued vocalizations, was that record's simmering centerpiece and today it receives an deservedly cosmic video to accompany it. Director Max Vitali crafted a weightless clip that captures the Scandinavians in the midst of intense introspection, before launching into delicate explorations of space and psychedelic pattern and grid worlds.

Vitali says that the clip is about "exploring the space around you and finding your own space in it all," a sentiment that Robyn herself later echoed on Twitter. You can watch the clip above thanks to The Creators Project.
