Wow! This is like a punch in the stomach…
Yeah. What Indigo and Botgirl said (in Twitter). The link to the song above is just to the music, but I take it that you saw the video as well, which is also brilliant in the way you second-guess the story from the end image, and get it wrong. Is that part of your end image too? Video: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rVeMiVU77wo
Actually, I deliberately didn’t link to the original video, because I’d composed this shot in my head long before seeing it myself. The song inspired the image, and when I saw the video, I figured I was dead on. (wink wink)
The video is incredible. But I loved the song first, and haven’t been able to stop singing it for days. It was the repetition in my head of “please don’t go, I’ll eat you whole, I love you so” over and over and over that made me think of a manic scene to go with it.
My daughter showed me the video just a couple of days ago, and I was happy to see my mind went the same places as the video’s producers.
I love the nod to the Wild Things in a lot of Alt J’s music. Have you heard them, Jim?
