Disclosure share the summer-perfect and stunning video for their recent hit single "She's Gone, Dance On." Hailed as an "exuberant new four-on-the-floor heater" by Stereogum, the electronic phenomenon dropped in May to massive acclaim and kicked off an action-packed season for the multi-platinum-selling duo.

Directed by Vincent Catel (a Paris-based director/photographer who's created campaigns for luxury fashion houses like Hermès and Dior), and featuring the French dance collective La Horde (Madonna, Sam Smith, Spike Jonze,) the video for "She's Gone, Dance On" fully amplifies the euphoric energy of Disclosure's latest single: an epic house track on which brothers Guy and Howard Lawrence sample an Ennio Morricone composition from the 1978 film Così Come Se. In an instant hit of pure pleasure, the sensually charged and often surreal visual captures a group of friends partying against the backdrop of Southern France and all its dazzling natural beauty. With its free-flowing choreography and gorgeous use of light and color, the video unfolds in a nonstop whirlwind of close-up images (cotton-candy clouds, mouths mid-kiss, skin drenched in moonlight or glistening with sweat, time-lapse shots of flowers in full bloom). As the scene shifts from daylight to dark and back again with a dizzying speed, "She's Gone, Dance On" ultimately leaves the viewer deeply entranced and wildly uplifted. (continue)
