Maximilien & Praa presented a look at the deluxe LISWAYA video for “Alliance” via Elephant & Castle. Produced by Leslie Dupuis-Mendel, Antoine & Robin Watine with GLITCH Paris alongside Les Mauvaises Filles & WAT Film; the intuitive & elevated atmospheric world of Max & P are further accentuated in the camera lens courtesy of cinematography by James Coote, Elodie Ferré & Gabriella Choueifaty with grips & gaffers Victor Bindefeld, Nathan Jean-François combined with set designer Malou Dongelmans & make-up styled by Mouna Benouhoud.

The track’s atmospheric & ethereal nature is brought to life with modern art-pop visuals of vistas & inspired dance maneuvers. The track opens up with a cosmic swirl that takes the audience to Praa restfully meditating upon awakening with the light of the sun. Lyrics of breaking out of the barriers beset by the mind are sung & spoken over the mix from Timsters & Maximilien that emulates the feel of opening one’s eyes to the potentials & promises that a new day can hold. Praa alternates between lyrical bars & song about overcoming any obstacles, alternating between sporadic states of rhythmic footwork & resting places of pensive reckonings. Praa & Maximilien’s single & video for “Alliance” is the perfect source of inspiration to start your day/week/weekend on the proper foot with an enlightened sense of consciousness & purpose.

Maximilien & Praa’s new single “Alliance” is available now from Elephant & Castle.
