Back in august Alt-J
released the first video for "Left Hand Free" off This Is All Yours
. The video showcased the carefree lives of a bunch of college aged kids in bum-fuck where ever USA: fireworks, dirt roads, and boozy water sports. It was a pretty romantic vision of young rural America.
Today they released a darker vision of America's carefree youth. Directed by Leblanc + Cudmore
, the second official video is set at a rich kid pool party. Good looking party guests engage in a hedonistic afternoon party full of champagne showers, make out sessions, and an oddly present security team. The slow motion video takes a turn for the violent in a Tarantino like twist, and pretty much revels in the sunny massacre. You guys... I think it's a statement on like, how America's youth is like, the worst.
Leblanc + Cudmore produce excellent videos with top notch cinematography. Watch the new video for "Left Hand Free," and then contrast it to the original.
