It’s Friday, so here’s the video for “Don and Sherri” by Matthew Dear
“Directors Judy Welfare and Jeremy Hollister capture much of the song’s fervent busyness by using a special 5 camera rig,” label Ghostly International explains, “splayed out in a semi-circle and attached to the bed of a truck. With Dear literally hanging out over the street, they used mirrors to create a layered effect, similar to the vocals on Don and Sherri, except these shots were achieved for real, in-camera.”
It’s an impressive concept, and it’s well executed here. Sure, I feel bad that I can’t help but compare it to the video for the Falco classic “Der Kommissar,” but I assure you that the comparison’s a favourable one.
Dear’s latest, Black City, was released earlier this month. I haven’t heard the whole thing yet, but what I have heard doesn’t disappoint, and I’d definitely recommend it.
