3L3D3P (pronounced EL-DEE-PEE) is the cryptic alias under which Los Angeles native Marina Thompson creates genre bending electronic music that spans punk, techno, and experimental pop. Today, she’s released a new video for “idontlisten,” which finds Thompson playing the role of a convenience store clerk, performing her rave-ready anthem while backlit by cyberpunk visuals.
She explains the video “really brought me back to the days of being a kid and I’d spend hours making music videos on my own. I would just learn and experiment as I went along and just flow. I really wanted the essence of 3L3D3P to ring true through the visualization of this video, so I directed, styled, and handled post production of the video myself. It took a lot of time, it made me a little bit more insane, but it also felt natural. The cuts, the style, the feel of the video are fueled with my blood.”
