Grizzly Bear - "Gun-shy"
You can't help but wince at this brilliantly uncomfortable music video directed by Kris Moyes for the Brooklyn based indie rockers track from their 2012 album, 'Shields.' The idea for the Gun-Shy video came from the simple question: 'If the creative energy of any living organism could be seen, what would it look like?'
The whole concept originates from the fact that science has yet to prove where creativity comes from, and why some people possess a knack for music, drawing or other creative impulses while others have little to none. The video starts off with a very medical exploration of extracting the so-called creativity before shifting to a more metaphysical, abstract tone. Not for the squeamish.
