The excellent new album from Bowerbirds which is out March 6 via Dead Oceans now has a video to accompany one of the standout tracks, “Tuck the Darkness In.” The video for the track from The Clearing features an inquisitive child’s journey with fish. Although that sounds silly, the video might have you in tears by the end.
I am always on the look-out for unique music videos, and typically, indie bands pull through with quality footage. However, Arcade Fire’s new video for “We Used To Wait” trumps them all.
Chris Milk used GoogleChrome technology to create an interactive “experience” (because the term “music video” doesn’t do it justice.)
This is how it works: You type in your childhood address. The video will load and when it is ready, a play button will appear. This interactive music video opens a variety of other windows throughout the song, allowing for the viewer to get swept up into the nostalgia.
Close your other browser windows, turn up your speakers, and enjoy.
