Okay, world, I’ll be honest….
I posted this before watching the video because I could not find it on my phone and had to go to work. Now, though, I’m back…so, let me do a proper post. Well worth the wait and a wonderful touch on a Monday night.
The song is absolutely incredible and it is full of so much meaning; while I’m not certain what exactly the true story behind the song is, it is full of passion and I think it really speaks to anyone who’s felt judged, tricked, or perhaps has looked in the mirror and questioned who he or she is as a person.
Such a great song and a pretty cool video. Finally a story video by a band. I love it when bands do story videos…I find them so moving and in general, depending on the story, I guess, there is a certain je ne sais quoi about them. I guess I think of Matthew Good Band’s videos back in the day and how they all were story videos. Ahh….memories. Strange Days, Apparitions, Load Me Up…all incredible.
This video, in my opinion, seems to have some sort of honesty in it…maybe it’s how it’s shot…but I feel like I am watching some independent film. What happens to Gustav? What happens to the other band members? Is there a sequel?
The video is very reminisicent of Coldplay’s The Scientist…(seeing at how it’s all shot and then reversed…backwards mode, anyone?) Okay, I just made up that term, I’m sure it’s called something much more technical…but, please, work with me on this one.
Overall, a good video and song. I’d recommend this band, and this video, to anyone who likes The Scientist, likes rock songs with powerful meaning, and of course, like me, likes story music videos.
High fives, all around, boys. High fives, all around. Thanks for bringing creativity, integrity, art, and intelligence back into my rock world. Impressed and proud, as always.
Morning! As promised, here’s our new video for ‘You Are Not’! Please reblog this!
