Les Jupes “Hold Me Down” Video

Winnipeg’s Les Jupes return with a video for “Hold Me Down” from their new EP Negative Space. The clip is atypical for a lyric video: letters and whole words slip between foreground and background images; slow pans reveal text that peek in and out from behind instruments, band members and various office objects.

The band’s faces are left out of the frame entirely, letting the text speak for itself. With essential physical details omitted, “Hold Me Down” shows that lyrics and music are all Les Jupes really need to do the talking.
