I dare you to not be charmed by this new Metronomy video directed by the legendary Michel Gondry. Sure, it's whimsical and playful, but it also unfurls with an ease that belies the complex arrangement: Metronomy's Joe Mount and band perform at the center of a hexagonal set with the camera darting through various windows to show us the band as the living, breathing, rocking center of various dioramas. It's a mix of 2D and 3D and a collision of stagecraft and videomaking — something Gondry has played with before in Bjork "Bachelorette" — that shines as simply brilliant.
Wanna learn more? Then head to a special Google Hangout session on Wednesday, February 12 @ 5pm GMT, with Gondry and Mount. You'll be able to post questions via the video's YouTube comment section — use the hashtag #loveletters — or watch a live stream of the action from the band's YouTube channel.
