videoHinds 'Warts' by Pedro Martin-Calero
Spanish garageband Hinds have got together again with Pedro Martin-Calero, following their lovely video together for Garden, with another, just as beautifully designed and witty clip. Possibly more so. And this time the feisty Hinds girls are up against a worthy rival. Adorned in kimonos, Hinds spend this video trying to keep a young man away from the girl of his dreams. Are they a force for the greater good, or are they just making things difficult for fun? Well, when the dream girl in question takes each member of the geisha-gang out in a particulalrly gruesome way, whilst giving a knowning, dead-eyed look to the camera, I think the question is well and truly answered.Pedro Martin-Calero has delivered a really gorgeous video here - full of bold colours and gorgeous minimalist composition. Some great VFX work and artful visuals help to tell this story fantastically well. Cold-blooded murder has rarely looked and felt this good.
