Owen Pallett – “The Sky Behind The Flag” Video

Owen Pallett’s sophomore solo album under his own name, the gorgeous, meticulous In Conflict, was one of 2014’s best. Today the Canadian musician and Arcade Fire collaborator released a video for one of the album’s tracks, “The Sky Behind The Flag.” Animated videos seem to be something of a thing this year, and this one was created by Eno Swinnen. Pallett said the song is about distance and closeness:

The song is about how great distance can exist between things that appear to be very close. Like two lovers, or two halves of a brain: the extrovert that is engaging with the world, and the introvert that is providing commentary.
