The video for this classic Chills song works not for its earth-shattering concept, nor its production values or performances (which are largely nonchalant). It looks miserable, nihilistic even. But — through luck or good management — the video for this Chills classic works, clinging to the melancholy essence of the song like a shrunken homespun. Observant viewers will notice a single bird — not unlike the lonesome outcast portrayed by Martin Phillipps — flying back against the flow.
Mesmerizing electron micrography featuring the infinitesimal workings of a time piece adds appreciable value to the remix of this mid 90s track. Sparing use of colour, and the inaudible rantings of a semi-clad man serve to compound the complexity and appeal of this slightly disconcerting clip.
