King Krule’s new video for “A Lizard State,” a fast beat-jazz workout from his 2013 debut album 6 Feet Beneath The Moon, opens with an old Alfred Hitchcock Presents introduction, one in which Hitch used rudimentary special effects to make gravity-related optical illusions and probably blew the minds of everyone watching TV when it first aired. The rest of the video plays out as a stately black-and-white homage to that moment, with Archy Marshall occupying some berserk gravity-field and a young lady in the next apartment doing some Rear Window-esque spying on him. There’s an iguana, too, and maybe that’s a Hitchcock reference that I just don’t recognize. Jamie-James Medina directs; watch it below.
