Jimmy Brown - 20th June 2011

Canada - the Barcelona of music video direction, from Barcelona - have done it again.

The video for White Lies' Holy Ghost isn't quite as prodigious as those for El Guincho, Battles and the recent Vaccines, but it still resembles a bonkers dream sequence from a European arthouse movie from 1976, and in some respects its more epic than anything they've previously done. Biblical even. White Lies actually give a performance on a rocky hillside to dozens of 'disciples'... And all shot on proper film of course. Tremendous.
