Everything Everything tell NME about new video for 'Duet'
Watch the band's latest vid, directed by singer Jonathan Higgs, below
The video for the track, which is the band's latest single from their album 'Arc', was directed by frontman Jonathan Higgs. Speaking to NME about the concept behind it, he said: "This song is about being with someone you love at the end of the world, even if it's just the world that you both share.
"I wanted to do something visually related to the ash/concrete bodies found at the eruption of Mount Vesuvius in Pompeii," he added. "They are amazingly powerful to look at and formed by a totally natural, destructive force. The bodies of the people are huddled together while there is death literally raining down. That's what I wanted it to feel like."
With 'Arc' scoring them a top five hit in the UK Official Albums Charts, Everything Everything have claimed that the success of bands like themselves and Alt-J reflects a sea-change in British music. "Five years ago, you wouldn't have had a band like Alt-J or us all over radio," bassist Jeremy Pritchard said. "There’s been a sea change at Radio 1, for instance, that reflects the new epoch in music. It’s made by people who grew up on Radiohead and slightly more esoteric stuff than the last wave of British indie music, which was quite knuckleheaded."
Everything Everything recently finished up a UK tour, which included a NME Awards Show date.
