Naked bodies falling from the sky? Heads and torsos contorting in alien-like shapes? With Glass Animals and their creative direction, the psychedelic surreality of the video is immense. Directed by Max Siedentopf, the pixelated world is our last escape. The video is truly inspired by modernity and new technologies, but we can also find some elements of the Dadaism art movement, remembering a bit of the deconstructive aesthetic of Salvador Dalí. Dive into some kind of parallel universe full of weirdness and beauty.
Space Ghost’ is about someone I knew growing up in Texas … we drifted apart when I moved away at 13, but I found out a few years later he did something truly awful. The lyrics of the track are just wondering what makes someone change so much from being an innocent kid to someone who can even consider doing what he did. It talks about how in the 2000’s, violent video games and lyrics were blamed by the media for that type of misbehaviour in teenagers…but really I think there were much bigger societal problems at play. The video is a twist on those video games.
Singer Dave Bailey explains about the concept of ‘Space Ghost Coast To Coast’ song and video.
