Metronomy “The Upsetter”

Metronomy is such a hot band with great range but I was not expecting a video this ethereal from them. It’s a strange love story born and set in a lush forest. A bearded feral “woman” creates her love from branches and sticks until he eventually awakes and moves with her through the forest where she gradually transforms into a collection of leaves and bark herself. Are you still with me? Yeah, it’s trippy but quite beautiful. And for you video fundis out there, you’ll recognise Encyclopedia Pictura‘s green fingers all over this. I have posted their video for Bjork’s “Wanderlust” before and features many of the same elements. Such incredible craft and sentiment, I really like it.
