Everything Everything 'Spring/Sun/Winter/Dread' by Jonathan Higgs
As is customary, band frontman Jonathan Higgs has directed Everything Everything's latest video, for Spring/Sun/Winter/Dread, in which the band traverse a ravaged planet, sporting only their instruments and some rather stylish flame-proximity suits.
Due to the use of specialist UV and infra-red cameras, things looks positively toxic - a bleak, coarse quality that contrasts with the fresh, even upbeat nature of the song. Championing an old-school performance video vibe - perhaps due to the mirror-image effects - it conveys a triumphant feeling, like these guys could keep singing power anthems under any extreme weather condition.
"The song talks about seasons passing and getting older, so we wanted to concentrate on the sun and make it into a kind of oppressive force - positive and life-giving, but also burning and destructive.
"We used ultra-violet and infra-red cameras to get a look at the sun damage on our skin, and give everything an alien look. We shot in a quarry so we could have a clear horizon and a dry, hot, desert scene.
"Most of the sun effects were completed afterwards because we picked a rainy day to shoot, though we did spray everything silver in order to get some good light reflections and add to the heatproof/astronaut feel."
