This video is just so damn cute because the band is sincerely trying to be amazing. The song is repetitive and boring and simplistic in a bad way. Nothing about this song excites me. Lyrically, uninteresting. Vocally, annoying. Melody is monotonous and any harmony is almost non-existent. Instrumentally, I think I wrote better shit thirty minutes before an assignment was due in my music theory class....and I'm not a musician. Give me a couple minutes and I'll really tell you how I feel about this song.
The video attempts to be artistic and innovative, again in a simplistic way. It's laughably sweet. I watch it repeatedly because I like the 'surprise' of the band members appearing so dramatically by matchlight. Their faces all aglow. "Take me seriously as an artist," each one says with their silent looks of intent. And then the lead's Jim Morrison stance and walk away from the camera. Sexy time! I just want to pull him on top of me right now and have him dry hump me to Nirvana!
Seriously, I love this video.
post script: Ok. I was a little harsh with that. Do watch some of the other stuff by the group. In the Morning isn't bad. Actually far better than Wire to Wire. And Before I Fall to Pieces is entertaining especially after having just seen The Watchmen last night (eh, don't get me started!). So....every band has a bad song and far worse accompanying video. Right? Still, I laugh.
