Punching in a Dream
The Naked and Famous – 2010
This music video continued the fruitful collaboration between The Naked and Famous and directing duo Special Problems. Joel Kefali and Campbell Hooper bring their trademark mix of graphic design, film and painting to the synth driven alt-pop song, as vocalist Alisa Xayalith (suitably clad in a chiffon nightie) is tracked through an eclectic dreamscape. She sleep-walks, runs and skates through pine forest, snow, black sand, and a manor; ice hockey masks and hoodies add menace to the mélange. The promo won Best Music Video at the 2011 Vodafone NZ Music Awards.
