It’s rare these days to come by some truly amazing music videos. Videos that accompany the song as an art, rather than showing off how cool the band is. Johnny Flynn’s music lends itself to a clean palette for directors, ready for them to create something that will be a visual bed the song will lie upon.
“Barnacled Warship” off of his latest record “Been Listening” is just flat out amazing. Directed by Christian Devita (lead storyboard artist on Wes Anderson’s ‘Fantastic Mr. Fox’ and Tim Burton’s forthcoming ‘Frankenweenie’) this video is almost a-ha worthy in a very different way.
I don’t want to go into the technical aspect of it because I really just can’t. I’m a computer guy and god knows that I have no idea how the hell this was put together. I’m slightly curious while watching, but mostly just want to sit back and not care in the least.
Enough talking about it. Watch and enjoy.
