The music video for Miike Snow‘s new single, ‘The Wave,’ was unveiled today, and it is oddly brilliant — or brilliantly odd. Either way, Director Andreas Nillson (who also directed the video for ‘Paddling Out‘) does a marvelous job of storytelling through video and cinematography, and Miike Snow’s ‘The Wave’ acts as a perfect audial complement to the visual component. Read on for the plot description.
“The video is a continuation of a thread which began in their last video for ‘Paddling Out.’ In that video, a group of unfortunates were abducted to space in an experiment to create a perfect human named Jean Noel. Following some pretty brutal chainsaw surgery, the video ended with Jean crashing to earth in a spaceship seemingly manned by classical-era twins.”
