"We wanted this video to be a depiction of the fact that acknowledging the humanity of your enemy can be the most powerful battle tactic of all. Lay down your weapon."Muna's mission statement for this video certainly doesn't beat around the bush and neither does Tabitha Denholm's video. It's Muna vs. a line of faceless riot police - representing here an authoritarian regime that your imagination might not have to stretch too far to picture. Their message here is one of compassion, rather than violence, which in some circles might be a more controversial school of thought.Political ideologies here are intercut with some incredible costume and performance elements from the band. It looks like dystopia, but it's a very stylish dystopia.
