New De Thurah work!
Not quite the fireworks of some of his other vids, but still nice. Even when it feels half baked, it still looks great and puts the song/band in an interesting light.
meh.... doesn't quite work for me. Having an upbeat poppy song with a dark/moody video only works for me when there's a bit of irony. Here it looks like he recycled a 'concept' and somebody didn't realize it. This looks like outtakes from his Royksopp video.
Has all his stuff gotten darker since "Human" ? That video had a playfulness that seems to be gone now.
well, it was the first of his that i have seen, and i enjoyed it. the color compesition was earnest, directly paralleling the core subcontext of the lyrics. though, it did remind me a bit too much of bye, bye birdie ...
Academy films' previewer doesn't like me so I watched it (after several squillion commercials) at Yahoo. Agree with captainmarc22 above.
Disappointing really: I saw the band perform the single on TOTP (mainstream, if out of favour UK TV pop magazine) last night. Impressive without a video, you'd hope to double your money with one
Beautifully shot, but yeah marc it doesn't quite work.
