Alt-J “Hunger for the Pine”

Breaking news: Alt-J will be showcasing bits from their new album today via NPR. It’s just one of the heavily anticipated releases dropping this month and they’ve already leaked an incredible video to whet appetites. The video is for their track “Hunger for the Pine” and its been executed by director Nabil Elderkin. As always, Elderkin’s work is focussed and strong. He creates impactful narratives with little, and this video is a prime example of that. It features the hero running through a forest and then a field, from an unknown enemy. All while long arrows pierce his body as he approaches a memorable ending. It’s simple but so compelling to watch. And I’m not a big YA fiction buff, but it feels like some thing out of Hunger Games. And I could use some Katniss. Or are we still only talking about the Jennifer Lawrence leaked nude photos?
