Enfant unveil thought provoking video for new single ‘Border Of Mexico’
Enfant, a new electronic music duo from London, unveil their new music video for ‘Border of Mexico’, a powerful and harsh social commentary that critiques human activity on Earth.
New electronic music act Enfant have just unveiled the video for their latest single Border of Mexico which is due for release on 3rd December 2012. Written and edited by film director David Moya, it is a powerful social commentary that critiques human activity on Earth. Go here to watch the video: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=SX9h1Hb8Y9c.
The video, follows a man who has come back to Earth from space in a time where the human race has expanded across space and left Earth. We trace this man back to his origins when man lived on Earth but through its actions destroyed it. This concept has been mixed with the idea of the great Kubrick’s Space Odyssey and that human intelligence was given from outer space.
The video highlights climate change, natural disasters, animal cruelty, cruelty against other humans and war as causing the destruction of the planet. As nuclear bombs cover the earth we see a primal earth without humans and its natural beauty restored. It is this Earth that our man from the start of the video is met with as he returns from space.
David says “With this video I wanted to point the finger at ourselves and illustrate what could happen if we continue to behave in the way we have done in the past and allow this to continue into the future. I felt that the video’s message was more powerful by using real and existing footage rather than re-filming or fabricating anything ourselves.”

So, who exactly are Enfant?
Like new duo Disclosure and their new track - “Disclosure - Latch feat. Sam Smith” (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=93ASUImTedo) Enfant are an electronic music duo from London consisting of brothers Ali and Robin Owen.
Fast gaining a reputation for their frenetic live shows, this year has seen them smashing underground parties in Peckham to headlining club nights in London’s East End. Their live show hits with impact as they leave a trail of big baselines, energetic showmanship and a reputation for creating spontaneous raves in their wake. There is always an overwhelming sense of intrigue in the room and it is always complimented by a feeling that there are bigger things to come.
A tribute to their hedonistic dreams with a landscape of crystalline electronica breaking with an infectious tempo change into a deep bass driven groove, Enfant’s new single ‘Border Of Mexico’ follows the success of their first online release ‘Waking Up The Sun’ which brought them support from key tastemaker blogs all over the blogosphere. “The track was inspired by a trip to Mexico and is really just about letting go, losing inhibitions and letting your passions take over” say the twins. “So many people come from the States to Mexico to party and do things they can’t do in America and so it’s about going to a place (not just a physical place) where you can ditch your shackles and be/do whatever it is you want.”
Enfant have already been compared to the likes of Empire Of The Sun, Pnau, Cut Copy, Midnight Juggernaughts and more but ultimately they bring their own unique style and writing to the electronic music scene and have an enviable knack of producing music that you love enough to believe, right there and then. Enfant’s goal is simply to create ’a great party’. And that is exactly what they do.
