This video from Phantogram (who are like one of my favorite musical duos of all time) puts me in the mood for apocalypse. The starkness of the interiors reminds me of David Lynch. The crashing waves reminds me of Jeff Nichols’s Take Shelter. And then, of course, you’ve got the whole Ex Machina thing going on as well.
This video was directed by Grant Singer, who has directed videos for pretty much everyone. Well, maybe not everyone by he has worked with Taylor Swift, which is just as good. He’s also done videos for Lorde, The Weeknd, Ariel Pink, Sleigh Bells, and Skrillex.
(Also, to all of our readers and to my fellow collaborators here at the Shattered Lens, rest assured that all of you still get me high.)
