Probably not safe for work, but "Unholy" lives up to its title with Sam Smith, Kim Petras, and an audacious group of dancers getting as freaky as they wanna be in a stage show at a unique spot called The Body Shop.
A strange Day In The Life for Interpol that blurs reality with fiction and psychedelia as they have an actual press conference in Mexico City — check the recording of the livestream — where a character played by actor Ebon Moss-Bachrach brings chaos to the table.
Paul Banks, Interpol:: “I like to describe the video for ‘The Rover’ as a prequel. It’s the origin story of the character described in the song, the birth of a cult leader. When we meet him he is partly unhinged. He’s a man on the verge, an artist subjected to great pressures, and beset with existential frustrations. A distracted hipster who enjoys psychedelics, let’s say.
The events that take place in Mexico City, be it a bump on the head, a visit to a shaman, or the influence of his rescuers (the street gang known as ‘Los Locos’) trigger the birth – the eruption – of this new figure, ‘The Rover.’ His rescuers become his first followers.
In the end of the video he exacts his ‘revenge’ on Interpol with a mischievous act of disruption during the press conference. He grabs me by the head – to save me? Forgive me? Or simply as a gesture of his new independence – the butterfly becoming."
