Happy Valentine’s Day everyone. Just in time to celebrate the international day of love is the music video for ‘Love Letters’ by Metronomy. The man behind the music video is none other than French film director Michel Gondry known for his creative visual style and his ability to manipulate mise en scène.
Throughout the video you’ll notice Gondry’s aesthetic by how the objects are positioned in various scenes within the music video. The juxtaposition of two dimensional and three dimensional elements creates a fantastical, yet immersive environment that best captures Metronomy’s fun flowing rhythm and personality. What I find most impressive about the music video is how it draws inspiration from the Beatles’s earlier animated music videos while maintaining it’s individuality. The video comes alive as a postmodernist painting playing out in the real world.
Enjoy our stills from the music video and be sure to check out the rest of Metronomy’s discography.
