“If I didn’t mind the distance, it would probably make me stronger…”
Here is a band that has been sorely missed in the realm of Australian music for a couple of years now – Blue Mountains crew Cloud Control, last seen flogging their remarkable 2010 album Bliss Release. This year, they’re going to drop a new album – next month, in fact – called Dream Cave. I have heard it, yes. No, I’m not going to give it to you. What I can tell you is that they’ve done an absolutely fantastic job with it; and what you’re about to see is their best music video to date set to one of the album’s highlights.
The clip takes place in Bolivia, and follows the adventures of a sweet little girl and a creepy, dodgy clown. Some music video tragics may sniff out some similarities character-wise between this clip and Bit By Bats‘ video for All Night. Some may not have, given it’s such a deep cut to compare it to. Regardless, let’s focus in on the clip itself – beautifully shot, wonderfully synced and a delightfully odd interpretation of the song. Lovely stuff. Album out in August, tour in September – don’t say I didn’t warn you!
