We just heard TV On The Radio’s truly excellent new song, “Million Miles,” and just like that, a video emerges, too. Directed by Natalia Leite (who, as far as I can tell, is also the video’s central figure: Blanche; the woman in the white dress above), the clip works as both an ecological warning as well as a surreal-ish narrative about man communing with nature. Or something.
As TVOTR’s Kyp Malone told NPR:
“It’s fun to take the idea of a song outside of the world of sound, give it fuller expression, expand its dimensions. I’ve wanted to collaborate with Natalia since I first saw her work and I thought this would be a good opportunity. We got a lot of help from a lot of creative people. Very excited to get to tell a story in this form.”
Indeed. Check it out.
