#630 John Joseph Brill – Kings

What better vibe for your Monday morning than the realisation that the long ageing process is as unavoidable as death and taxes? Stick with us though, please, as we bring you this video from John Joseph Brill for ‘Kings’, taken from his latest EP False Names. The man himself explains: “Kings is a song about the loss of innocence and the realisation that you as an individual are mortal and alone. With the video we wanted to speak to the horror of that, my plasticine head ageing and growing more grotesque as life takes its toll like some sort of claymation Dorian Gray seemed an appropriate representation of that horror. At the same time the plasticine creates an artificial almost playful suspension of disbelief much as our brains do in regard to death and the passage of time.?” Don’t worry, it comes to us all…
