Reminiscent of the video for DeLorean’s “Stay Close” and of similar palette to today’s Karl X Johan’s “Flames”, though wildly different content and style, this video for the Crystal Castles’s song “Not In Love” is pretty neat as a sort of textural piece. I’d like to see it projected on a huge wall as people mingled and got in the way of the projection. As far as narrative goes, it’s got nothing, but I don’t think that’s the point. It’s clearly a mood piece, nothing more, nothing less. As with the DeLorean video, I can appreciate all the layers in this.
It’s nice. The song’s decent, even if you’re not a huge fan of Robert Smith’s unmistakeable vocal style.
