Mansions – “City Don’t Care” [VIDEO]

Narrative: Nada.

Performance: Somewhere in there.  I think he’s singing to the ocean?  Maybe he’s in love with a mermaid.

Song: Chill.  Sad.  Probably good winter music.

Why You Should Watch It: The dizzying cross-fades make this one to watch under the influence.  Which influence doesn’t matter, as long as you’re not hitting the point where you’re wheeling around to keep your balance.  Simple, effective camera work and long, slow dissolves emphasize the song’s confusion and sadness, while the beach – bound location emphasizes the chorus of the song.  The city don’t care, so why not just head somewhere else?
