Alt-J "Pleader" (Isaiah Seret, dir.)

alt-J - Pleader (Official Video)

A dystopian and disturbing epic inspired by Richard Llewellyn's novel How Green Was My Valley and Andrei Tarkovsky's film The Sacrifice. In other words, something that's just a bit more heady and challenging than most trending music videos.

Joe Newman, alt-j: "When we set out to make a video for 'Pleader', [I] sent the following one-line brief to director, Isaiah Seret: 'A Welsh mining love story; A tidal wave of earth.' What Isaiah came back with was an epic short-film inspired both by the song's source material and Tarkovsky's The Sacrifice. A family must pit their desire to have a child against the knowledge that this would destroy their community. The hypnotic, hymnal quality of the song binds the video throughout, hinting at redemption while destruction takes place." [via NPR Music]
