Let It Go: The Cat Thief

Dark and atmospheric, this music video by new-on-the-scene Pasadena filmmaker Jonathan Raines evokes 80s sounds from artists such as Michael Sembello, Annie Lennox and even Depeche Mode, but perhaps with a purer, less synthesized aesthetic.

The colon between the two halves of the title punctuates the collaboration behind the project because the music and performance are by his friend and fellow Californian Nadine Ellman, who knows how to grab a hook and run with it—or stalk the night as a diamond thief.
