In a way this SPOON video feels like a trip through previous SPOON videos — the car from "Do You" and maybe the studio from "The Underdog" — as a camera glides surreally from scene to scene, catching snippets of sex, crime, regret and other oddities.
Try not to guess the plot in “The Swimmer" — LeBlanc + Cudmore’s super-stylish punk whatever video, until you’ve watched it two or three times — the video is more a pastiche than a strictly plot-driven affair. And quite the pastiche it is! Watch as a guy gets baptised, slapped and beaten-up while taking breaks to enjoy the television or watch some kids dancing.
If "Left Hand Free" is the closest Alt-J will get to beer commercial guitar, then this video is the closest they'll get to a bro's and ho's pool party. Of course, there's a twist, with sly hints at incoming danger eventually descending into assault rifle madness.
