Glass Animals’ new single ‘Agnes’ comes with a frightening video that may take some time to realise what is happening to poor Dave Bayley.
Directed by Eoin Glaister, the song and video create an apt mix for exploring themes of distress or grief. An abstraction as they point out, which is shown gradually by the pace of centrifuge against the human body.
Shooting the video, in which Dave is propelled in a human centrifuge, he explains:
“this was probably the most intense video-making experience I’ll ever have. But its the only way that we could just about begin to simulate for a moment what happens within Agnes. ”
If you think to watch this once was dizzy enough, imagine being in it 16 times while trying to film it to the movement of the song.
The track is taken from the band’s second album, “How To Be A Human Being” which was released last year.
