I’ve been a huge fan of the new Jamie xx album In Colours. I personally feel like it’s far better than anything he did with The zz, *achem*, The xx. Adding to the grandeur of his new album is this epic music video directed by Erik Wernquist, who you may remember from his video Wanderers, which follows intergalactic explorers breaching the undiscovered parts of our universe.
For this music video Erik takes a similar approach yet this time he plots the potential of humans inhabiting Mars. It’s kind of a slow burn, the real juicy stuff doesn’t start till about the 2 minute mark, but I promise you it’s worth it. This should be watched full-screen on the largest monitor/TV in your office.
And if you haven’t listened to the new record yet, get on it.
