Max Elto Share Eerie New Video for "Citylights" w/ NYLON

'TAPED RAI' EP Out Now via Big Beat Records

NEW YORK, NY--(Marketwired - Jan 22, 2015) -

"To put it simply: the pitch of Ryberg's soul-piercing notes atop Lijegre's icy minimalist downbeats is emotive and thought-provoking. And in their newest video for their single 'Citylights,' Max Elto shows us (once again) how to reel in a set of ear drum" - NYLON

"...slow-burning, minimalist, glacially downbeat electro" - Noisey

"...icy, electronic-based, slow-burner that has touches of The xx's elegant restraint mixed with that typical Scandinavian edge" - Pigeons & Planes

Max Elto, the cryptic Swedish production duo comprised of Alexander Ryberg & Tom Liljegren, has premiered an epic new video for their song "Citylights," off their debut Taped Rai EP out now via Big Beat Records. Video is available for streaming on NYLON and is paired with an interactive version ( arranged by Nate Brown, the highly regarded creative force behind Max Elto (also a collaborative genius behind the Kanye West campaign).

In the video, which starts out innocent enough, the song's ethereal vocals and soul-piercing beats are creepily synced up with a mysterious, bludgeoned person in the rain... and that's just the beginning! We dare you to make it through to the end.

Of the video, Max Elto's own Tom Liljegre says, "The song is about longing for belonging, yearning for what you do not know. It's the fourth and final installment of the Taped Rai EP. With the video we want to portray the accomplishment of trying. We're very proud of it."

Max Elto previously shared another video for "Shadow Of The Sun" (YouTube), another stand-out track from the Taped Rai EP. The duo's blend of deep-house grooves with complex pop sensibilities is paired together by Alex's soulful and melodic vocals.
