Music Video Roundup: Efterklang, Polly Scattergood
Polly Scattergood's Wanderlust takes me back to the Black Cherry era of Goldfrapp with the familiar ambient/dreamlike electropop sound, and it's oh so good. Taken from her upcoming Arrows album, the music video just seems to get better with multiple viewings.
'The video has a puzzle structure: the whole story progressively makes sense to the viewer as minutes go by.'
Director Vince Carry offered some interesting insight into the music video for Danish band Efterklang's The Ghost. A fitting name for the track, considering that the band spent a week gathering footage and sound samples from an abandoned Russian mining town for inspiration. Moral of the story? Curses are pretty timeless.
