Illenium shares post-apocalyptic visual for ‘Paper Thin’ with Tom DeLonge
While Illenium didn’t necessarily disappear to any extent in the first half of 2020, the second half has undoubtedly been his for the taking. After sharing a three-part remix package for his “Paper Thin” linkup with Tom DeLonge, Illenium is now complementing the single with an Oscar-worthy cinematic visual.
Set in a post-apocalyptic universe, the movie-like “Paper Thin” video, directed by Emmy Award-winning director Kyle Cogan, suitably matches the hyperactive temperament of the pop-punk song. Although neither Illenium nor Tom DeLonge make a real-life appearance in the video, the story follows a young man and woman who attempt to escape the clutches of an enigmatic villain. The visually stunning short is considered to be a sibling narrative to Illenium’s similarly immersive counterpart for “Nightlight.”
