One of my all time favorites and quite likely yours at this point, SubRosa have a new video out for “Killing Rapture”. The clip is interesting, reminding me of the poetic natural side and camera work of Zhang Yimou’s HERO in the gorgeous and simple opening shot and evolving to a strong juxtaposition of seeming rural rootedness against modern dissociation of self. The rapture in the title in the wee morning hours after Good Friday has just ended and as we may be on the brink of worse bombings in the world, the baby’s face in one moment of the clip…it all has me wondering what the future holds and why pundits are so eager to chase the war ratings and drum up support for unreasonable horrors.
Anyhow, this is an intense and interpretive, well made clip set to the band’s particular and stirring sound. Eternal respect to this group.
