We Are The Ocean 'Good For You' by Edward John Drake
Edward John Drake's video for We Are The Ocean's Good For You is an ambitious work of musical theatre, captured in one flowing camera move which plays with the viewer's expectations, demands attention - and may well leave you wondering what the hell happened.
We're drawn in by WATO singer Liam Cromby stalking through a junk yard cum garage, before topless men slide open the gates for a Sixties car to pull in and the guys inside to free the blonde girl being held in the trunk. Violence follows - but the blonde certainly doesn't appear to be the victim...
EDWARD JOHN DRAKE:
"When We Are The Ocean sent through the track, I sensed we had an opportunity to do something we're desperately in need of: a chance to relax and have fun with a damn fine song. Above all we wanted to create a sense of chaos with Liam as our champion, effortlessly guiding us through an unknowable moment.
"What we’re seeing is the final act in an untold film or the first movie in a trilogy."
