alt-J

Eines Nachts, als ich rastlos durch das Internet streifte, stiess ich zunächst auf die Band alt-J und dann auf dieses Musikvideo:

Vorsicht, ist nicht ganz ohne. Aber bemerkenswert. Er scheint glücklich zu sein am Ende, bevor er in Flammen aufgeht.

Starker Song, starkes Video.

Jetzt kann man sich natürlich fragen: was soll das? Hier ein YouTube-Erklärungsversuch von joshfcum:

Well from the meaning of the song this is my interpretation. Hunger of the pine is about that yearning you have for someone you love who doesn’t love you back. Each arrow represents being let down, or shot down if you will in your advances by this person. But that yearning and desire doesn’t leave, doesn’t dissipate and so you carry on, even though you’re hurting. You carry on even though you keep getting hurt and shot down until finally you can’t go anymore. At this point you make you’re final plea, and in doing that you set yourself up to be destroyed and the likelihood of it working is like the likelihood of missing all of those flaming arrows.
