Question: what do you get when you mix a Baltimore dream pop duo with the director of numerous episodes of Breaking Bad? Answer: an intense and violent snapshot through the windows of an anonymous tower block soundtracked by a sublime melody, also known as the new video for ‘Wild’ by Beach House. Director Johan Renck (Breaking Bad, Suede, The Knife, Bat For Lashes) has created a claustrophobic narrative which interweaves tense intimacy and bursts of primal violence in the bleak inner city landscape of America… as well as lots of cigarette smoking. ‘Wild’ is undoubtedly one of the stand out tracks on Bloom, the fourth album from Beach House, released earlier this year on Bella Union. It deserves a spotlight and this video is a fine one. Watch it below.
