Fear Of Men – “Sane” Video

Brighton trio Fear Of Men released their sparkling, alluring sophomore album, Fall Forever, back in June, and today they’re sharing a video for highlight “Sane” while on an extensive European and North American tour. It was directed by Rosie Carr and Lucy Jones and features Jessica Weiss wandering around a tucked-away and garden and dancing in front of an ancient-looking wall of bones. In a statement, the co-directors said:

In Jess’s lyrics, we felt a sense of conflict between dependence and detachment to someone, or something.

We wanted to explore the notion of ‘separating’ through a physical process, like the transitional conflict between states of liquid and solid metal. We wanted to create a numinous world that explores this push and pull between flesh and stone. The garden in the video belongs to sculptor Judy Wiseman. It’s a magical place, hidden away in North London suburbia, full of secret walkways, casts of various body parts, and ritualistic circles of bones. The garden is soon to be dismantled, so we hope that this video also serves as a lasting imprint of its enigma and charm.
