DC has a paranoid mind in Dir. Lx's fourth collaboration with the artist. 

The video for Paro(noia) builds upon the suspicious themes of the track, presenting DC in a series of vignettes, weighed down by a lingering sense of danger. 

Glitchy edit effects and an out-of-body perspective elevate the minacious vibes, and eagle-eyed viewers may notice the hoodie DC wears - displaying the quote "Only the Paranoid Survive" - which was first introduced in 2020's Neighbourhood

Brilliant work with a fresh aesthetic, and standout performances from the artist and the supporting cast.
