Majical Cloudz – “Childhood’s End” Video
Devon Welsh — otherwise known as Majical Cloudz — released a haunting video for “Childhood’s End,” the morose and disturbingly catchy ballad off of his forthcoming album, Impersonator. We’ve seen Emily Kai Bock’s gorgeous work before, and her direction of “Childhood’s End” is no exception. Scattered scenes are artfully pieced together in order to create a gloomy narrative set in mid-20th century suburbia. The lonely man depicted in the video is the actor Kenneth Welsh (another Twin Peaks star) who happens to be Majical Cloudz’s father. His performance makes the shudder-inducing inaugural lyrics — “Your father, he is dead/I see him in my head” — all the more chilling. That being said, it’s hard to look away. Watch below.
