Owen Pallett - The Sky Behind The Flag (Official Video)
Taken from the album "In Conflict".
Director/Animator: Eno Swinnen
Orchestral wonder Owen Pallett is back to promoting his incredible In Conflict LP, having just revealed an equally intimate but abstract set of visuals behind the album's "The Sky Behind the Flag."
Director/animator Eno Swinnen offers up a series of fragmented scenes throughout the clip. Scored by the nervous tension of Pallett's electronics-assisted mood-pop, it reveals prismatic, rotoscoped portraits of a long-haired woman, with subtitles alluding to a distancing relationship. Elsewhere, we're treated to the sight of an incomplete astronaut, and the unsettling waving of a declaratory, though ambiguous flag.
