Our old pals in Balto recently shot and released a stirring and thought-provoking video for “Airplanes” from their excellent Monuments EP. Frontman Dan Sheron wrote to call my attention to the release, and here’s how he describes the video:
Brooklyn trio Au Revoir Simone have released a video for “Somebody Who” off their forthcoming (Sept. 23rd) Instant Records release Move In Spectrums. French site Konbini, which premiered the clip, writes of the video: “Aujourd’hui marque le retour du trio angelique.” [Today marks the return of the angelic trio.]
I couldn’t agree more.
This week, as part of their ongoing “valtari mystery film experiment,” (hint: use your mouse to highlight the hidden text!) Sigur Rós have released the video for “Rembihnútur.” The video was produced by Arni & Kinski, who have also directed for Snow Patrol, Placebo, and Ólöf Arnalds, and focuses on the stillness and personal revelations that can be found through meditation.
Here’s how Arni & Kinski describe the inspiration for the video:
“the elevation of your consciousness helps the overall consciousness of the planet.” -gourasana.
the much needed changes in the world will happen through changes within each and every one of us. we all want and need love. this film is a celebration of sigur rós’s music and the benefit it is having in the elevation of consciousness that is happening with humankind. people are finding strength in love, care, and respect for themselves, each other, and the world we live in.
for the last twelve years meditation has been a way of life for us. going within, releasing emotions, moving through negativity, judgment, discouragement, and the fears that are so often in the mind.
being able to move from the mind into the heart. this is what the music of sigur rós helps us to do and we use it as a tool in our meditation. in meditation we are able to feel and move through our emotions allowing us to drop deeper within our hearts. from this depth of heart we are finding more acceptance, compassion, love, gratitude, passion, clarity, intuitive thinking and much much more. we hope this video will inspire you to do your part in elevating the consciousness of the planet in whatever way that may be.
peace and love, arni & kinski
It’s a beautiful, thought-provoking work that will definitely add a bit of chill to your Summer. Have a look:
Out this week is a new video for “Breaking Down” from Florence + The Machine‘s Ceremonials album. Directed by Tabitha Denholm, who also directed the considerably more dramatic “Cosmic Love” and “Never Let Me Go” videos, the lighthearted, retro “Breaking Down” uses Super 8 to evoke the summers of the ’60s and ’70s. It’s a beautiful, perfect-for-Summer, video which is sure to make you nostalgic for all those backyard gatherings and road trips of years gone by… Have a look!
