Mew Release Video For New Track '85 Videos'


Mew have released a music video for their new track "85 Videos." The song comes from the group's forthcoming album "Visuals," which is set to be released on April 28th.

The new clip was directed by frontman Jonas Bjerre and he had the following to say about it, "I've been working a lot with kaleidoscopes lately. You have an image, or a sequence of images, and you snip out an angle, mirror it, and repeat it in a 360-degree angle. It's a beautiful thing, because almost no matter the state of the original image, it ends up a beautiful symmetrical, indefinable something.

"A picture of your messy desk turns into a strange flower. I like that you can't really envision what it will look like until you see it. I think our music is a bit like that too, even as we're working on it."

He continues: "I made a bunch of sequences, and crafted them into these ever-changing 'faces' that I then video-projected on to our actual faces. It's like wearing a mask made out of photons.

"You can say a lot of philosophical stuff about masks - but don't worry, I'm not going to. Hope you enjoy the video." Watch it here.
