Music Video: Metronomy "Love Letters" dir by Michel GondryMusic // Tuesday, 11 Feb 2014
Michel Gondry is a bit of an imaginative wizard when it comes to art directed music videos, pretty much putting together some of the most famous music videos of the last two decades (White Stripes, Radiohead, Foo Fighters' "Everlong", Bjork, etc). He has made feature films like "Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind" and "Science of Sleep" that follow on this DIY, handmade visual effect style, and his new music video for Metronomy's "Love Letters" fits the bill, albeit with a little more set painting...
Metronomy's Joe Mount noted of the experience "To work with Michel was a real joy, he's a very unpretentious and easy going guy. We're all easy going guys too so the day was very easy going. The video is everything we could have hoped for, it's simple but skillful and really highlights the art of tambourine playing."
