Mew – Comforting Sounds


Why don’t we share our solitude?


A great music video, today, and such a sweet song…

Their sound is “sort of surreal”, in a sense that words can’t exactly define. You just have to hear yourself.

Comforting Sounds has been released as a single on March 2003, and it’s also included in their third album, Frengers, released in April of the same year.

The video, directed by Sam Brown, and presented here in the director’s cut, is obviously based on a shortened version of the song, that actually plays for about nine minutes. Nine good minutes.

Sam Brown, currently signed to Flynn Productions have recently attracted the spotlights for his work with James Blunt videos. Well, nobody’s perfect, huh?

UPDATE (06/2009): Produced by Rebecca Mason at Flynn. Director of photography: Nick Sawyer. Editor: Dan Williams at Swordfish. Post production made at VTR (now merged into Prime Focus London.)

Un gran bel video, oggi, e una canzone deliziosa…

Il loro sound e’ “piu’ o meno surreale”, in un senso che e’ difficile dire a parole. Dovete ascoltarli da voi.

Comforting Sounds e’ uscito come singolo nel marzo 2003, ed e’ anche incluso nel terzo album dei Mew, Frengers, uscito nell’aprile dello stesso anno.

Il video, directto da Sam Brown, e presenta to qui nella director’s cut, e’ ovviamente basato su una versione accorciata del pezzo che dura circa nove minuti. Nove bei minuti.

Sam Brown, attualmente legato a Flynn Productions ha di recente attratto i riflettori per il suo lavoro sui video di James Blunt. Beh, nessuno e’ perfetto, no?

UPDATE (06/2009): Prodotto da Rebecca Mason presso Flynn. Direttore della fotografia: Nick Sawyer. Montaggio: Dan Williams presso Swordfish. Post prodotto presso VTR (ora parte di: Prime Focus London.)
