Indie electronic rockers New Diplomat have a new music video out for their single “Stay Up”. The clip was directed by Elliot Bastien Morin of and features Dores André, the principal dancer for the San Francisco Ballet.
The song is taken from the trio’s new six-track EP Replaced, which dropped yesterday. The effort was produced by Jeff Saltzman (The Killers, Muse, New Order, The Strokes). Guitarist Paolo Von Giordano said of working with the acclaimed producer:
“Working with Jeff Saltzman on this EP was amazing. He has this way of identifying a specific musical element that’s special, then seamlessly bringing it back throughout the song. For ‘Stay Up’, we were messing around with synths at our studio. We were talking about finding a sound that had a certain unique quality, almost confrontational. As soon as we felt the song was ready, we made a demo and sent it to Jeff. He replied immediately with ‘Oh yeah, let’s do this!'”
Live dates in support of Replaced are currently in the works, along with follow-up singles and videos.
