Petite Noir’s debut EP The King Of Anxiety is now available to purchase in CD and vinyl formats globally. To commemorate its release, the New York Times has premiered the video for EP standout ‘The Fall’ HERE, calling the track “a pensive, meditative ode to the inescapable changes wrought by time, with a quietly anthemic refrain and minimalist orchestration that might call the XX to mind.”

Directed by Yannick Ilunga (Petite Noir) and Rochelle Nembhard, the video for ‘The Fall’ explores their relationship, and symbolizes what we all face in our closest of relationships; the challenges which arise in our attempts to lose selfness and achieve unity.

Regarding the video, Ilunga says: 

“The video is inspired by the work of Serbian artist Marina Abromovic, and in particular her ‘The Artist is Present’ performance art piece (MoMA 2010), where she was reunited with her ex-lover, the German artist Ulay, after 22 years apart.

It’s intended as a raw and transparent look into what we do to each other in relationships, setting aside the fakeness and pretense that we shroud ourselves in.

When we fall, we fall together.” 

Petite Noir is currently working on his debut album for release by Domino’s sister label, Double Six, later this year.

The King Of Anxiety EP is now available in digital, vinyl, and CD formats from the Dom Mart
