It’s always nice when the premise of a music video matches the theme and concept of its song. Videos with metaphorical undertones and confusing sequences are of no benefit. The visuals for a love song should show two people enjoying each other’s company, not a pod of bottlenose dolphins backflipping in the ocean. “What the fuck is that about?” you’d say to yourself.
Alt-J is coming through with that literal realness in this new video for their record, “Something Good,” off the recently released An Awesome Wave. Despite a slightly misleading song title, the lyrics speak to the death of a matador. Similarly the video portrays the details of this event and puts true meaning behind the phrase, “actions speak louder than words.” Catch this visually engaging release below.
