Music Video of the Day: Snow (2010, dir by Adam Smith and Marcus Lyall)


As I sit here writing up today’s music video of the day, the temperature outside is plunging.  When I woke up this morning, it was 40 degrees outside.  Tonight, it’s 33 degrees and getting colder.  This weather may not be good for my asthma but at least it finally feels like Christmas around here!  Best of all, it might snow tonight.  My plan is not to sleep tonight.  Instead, I’m going to sit in front of a window, write, and look for snow.

Living in Texas, I’m lucky if I get to see snow twice in one year.  It snowed back in January.  Didn’t last for long.  It looked something like this:

Anyway, Snow is not only what’s on my mind but it’s also the title of today’s music video of the day!  Snow was the first track off of The Chemical Brothers’ seventh studio album, Further.  All 8 of the tracks featured a video directed by Adam Smith and Marcus Lyall.  Snow‘s dreamlike video features Jenny Godding swimming.  Intentionally or not, it reminds me a good deal of Irene Miracle’s surrealistic swim in Dario Argento’s Inferno.

Jenny Godding is also featured on the cover of Further.

Enjoy!
