Okay, so we’re huge fans of Canadian musician Owen Pallett (nee Final Fantasy)… This is the video for the latest single to be taken from his Heartlands album.
Directed by Yuula Benivolski and Geoffrey Pugen, ‘The Great Elsewhere’ features a beautiful yet barren wintry landscape over which Pallett’s vocals swoop and dart. The aesthetics of this video really bring the wind arrangements on this track to life and provide a dramatic grounding for the romanticism of Pallett’s vocal narrativism. 3:06 is where things start to get really interesting; we love the subtle blends of colour and the interesting camera angles that Benivolksi and Pugen employ to match the movement of the song. The pair provide a real visual treat and should be deservedly proud.
Heartlands is available to buy now on Domino Records.
