With the trauma of their “virtual kidnapping” now behind them, Barcelona’s Delorean are moving forward with the promotion for their latest album, this year’s Apar. The pop-friendly foursome have plans to tour the U.S. in early 2014, and they’ve also just shared the official music video for new single “Unhold.” Directed by Eric Epstein and debuted on Nowness, the clip features Chairlift siren Caroline Polachek (who sings vocals on the fluttery tune) wandering through New York’s Opus 40 sculpture park. Thanks to some visual trickery, the environment around Polachek warps and bends, giving the short a shapeshifting effect.

“The moving footage is resolved to a flat plane, so that everything in relief from that surface skews and stretches,” Epstein says. “The track has this sway to it that I thought could be complimented by the visuals… And to me the lyrics evoke misunderstanding and clashing perspectives, which seemed somewhat fitting for the approach we took.”

Watch the silly-putty visual above, and scroll down for Delorean’s upcoming tour dates.
