Music Video of the Day: Swim Far by Lara Snow (2019, dir by Lara Snow and Jonatan Harpak)

If you’ve seen previous Lara Snow videos like I Like Snow and Sometimes It’s Enough, than you might be surprised by the video for Swim Far.  On the basis of those previous videos, it was easy to think of Lara Snow as being an artist with a rather cold, almost vampiric aesthetic.  However, Swim Far presents us with a much more emotionally colorful and vibrant Lara Snow, one who is surrounded by flowers.  That said, the shadows and the surreal imagery are still there and we’re all the better for it.

According to an interview that Snow gave to When The Horn Blows, this video was shot in Tel Aviv and Geneva.

For the record, I like snow, too.  I especially love snow in December and January but, as of right now, I have my doubts as to whether it will happen during this particular holiday season.  It’s a shame.  Next year, I’ll do Christmas in Canada.

As for this video …. well, I like this video.  It’s trippy and weird and kinda disturbing and it’s got two dancing wolves.  Dancing wolves are always a good thing.

It was directed by Vadim Mechona, who was also one of the directors on the previous Lara Snow video that I shared.

For today’s music video of the day, we have the video for Lara Snow’s Sometimes It’s Enough.

Why do I like this video?  To a certain extent, I relate to it.  Abandoned buildings have always fascinated me, just the idea that a structure that was once full of life can suddenly be so … dead.  It’s hard to resist.  Just a few years ago, my sister and I had a lot of fun when we came across an abandoned house with an open door.  I mean, on the one hand, it was the perfect set-up for a horror movie.  On the other hand, that kind of made it fun.  That may or may not make sense to most people but it makes perfect sense to me.

This video also reminds me of the films of Jean Rollin.  That’s always a good thing.

Anyway, enjoy and welcome to December!
