David Wilson's gripping and thought-provoking video for Tame Impala's melancholic Let It Happen follows a businessman who, while dashing to catch a flight, collapses on the ground while clutching his chest. Never a good sign.

This catastrophic event sets off a disorientating sequence of lapses in time and place, which take the businessman (and us) on a startling rollercoaster involving a plane crash and the man free-falling towards Earth. And although we lose our sense of reality, his palpable sense of dread is made all the more real for it.

It's a perfectly dismal situation - and there is no conventional happy ending. But it plays out in a captivating and even beautiful way - a finale that unabashedly suggests a journey after Death.
