Floating Points is back with another new song. “Problems” is the third solo single from the producer this year, following “Grammar” and “Vocoder.” Watch the visual for the new track below.

The “Problems” music video features dancers voguing beneath elaborate lighting effects. Directed and produced by Hamill Industries, the clip makes use of a video processing technique called vector rescanning, which allowed dancers Hannah Ekholm and Jal Joshua to create sound from their choreography that was mixed in with the music as they shot the video.

“‘Problems’ is meant to agitate every single room that its ecstatic sound waves reach,” Hamill Industries shared in a statement. “We wanted to celebrate it with movement and dance and reshape it through sound, by using techniques that allow the signification of images. We have used lasers that spin and move with the music, making visible their sinuous shapes. It was important that this video shaped the electrical feeling you get when being on a dancefloor, the urge of dancing when sound waves reach your ears.”

Floating Points’ latest album, Promises, was released in March 2021. A collaboration with Pharaoh Sanders and the London Symphony Orchestra, the nine-track LP was shortlisted for the United Kingdom’s Mercury Prize, and followed the producer’s 2019 album Crush.
