Röyksopp – Senior Living

My brother just hit me with a link to a six song music video/short film for Röyksopp’s new album titled “Senior.” The film follows three girls as they explore the ruins and come across child zombies and lots of skulls. Shot in what looks like a crazy blown out war-zone city from Eastern Europe, actually turns out to be Detroit. The IFC website got a few quotes from the directors Noel Paul and Stefan Moore: “We shot it in Detroit because it is exists as a contemporary dystopia.” If you have to see it to believe it, if you’ve never been there. They didn’t do any set dressing either. “All of our locations were filmed as we found them.”

    Yup. I live in Port Huron which is about an hour north of Detroit. It can be a pretty spooky place right now. What’s weird is nearly across the street from some of those run-down abandoned buildings is one of the most thriving areas within 100 miles.
