In the spirit of Halloween, Vulture Hound has picked out 5 gruesome tales for your viewing pleasure this week, featuring; Murder, Fear, Tragedy, Monsters and the most ghoulish of all gymnastic disciplines – Trampolining.
Peder – ‘Shadows of My Mind’
Dir: Peter Harton
It’s a familiar story; boy meets girl, boy falls in love with girl, girl rejects boy, girl fall in love with another boy, boy kills that other boy with a crowbar. Danish artist Peder’s video for ‘Shadows Of My Mind’ stars the man himself as the eerily calm, likable, slightly tragic, and very jealous ‘boy’ at the centre of this darkly amusing tale.
Frank Carter & the Rattlesnakes – ‘Lullaby’
Dir: Carter and Richardson
Let’s talk about Frank Carter’s face. It’s a beautiful canvas of emotions; visually aggressive, yet able to morph between anger, fear and incredible vulnerability with just a simple eyebrow movement. Give his face an Oscar, now!
Talking about The Rattlesnakes latest video, ‘Lullaby’, Frank explains; “We wanted to try and bring to life all the panic and terror that is born from the delirium of sleep deprivation. Floating through a world of familiar unfamiliarities tormented by a nightmarish version of himself, our protagonist struggles to discern what is real and what is dream.”
Sleigh Bells – ‘I Can Only Stare’
Dir: Alex Ross Perry and Derek Miller
The latest track to be shared from the Brooklyn duo’s upcoming new album, Jessica Rabbit, gets an incredibly powerful promo video. Starring Alexis Krauss as three very different, but no less tragic characters, it’s another exceptionally emotional performance from the singer.
Kero Kero Bonito – ‘Trampoline’
Dir: Theo Davies
According to J-pop come Gameboy slacker-pop sensations Kero Kero Bonito – trampolining is easy. “First you fall down, then you jump back up again” – who can possibly argue with that? Neon lit and glitter drenched, this video for ‘Trampoline’ is as quirky as the music is annoyingly addictive.
The Little Kicks – ‘You and Someone Like Me’
Video by Kreopix
Halloween is upon us – time to break out the dancing skeletons. This promo from Scottish indie-pop band The Little Kicks is part Funny Bones, part Jason and the Argonauts and just a little bit 2004 iPod ad. It’s fun, intricate and more than a little bit amusing.
