GLASS ANIMALS Share Video for ‘Your Love (Déjà Vu)’
Surrealism dominates the newest video from Glass Animals for Your Love (Déjà Vu), and it feels like just the appropriate touch for the current time.
Sonically, Glass Animals have always forged their own path and with their newest video for Your Love (Déjà Vu), it appears that they will follow a similar trend visually. Assimilating a hybrid of organic and thermal imagery, the video features the band in a processed, touched-up, filtered digital reality that plays around with your sense of sight and almost induces a sensory overload with the fluorescent shades and jolting movements. Yet all of it appears perfectly-fitted for the track, and it is wholly encapsulating both musically and visually.
The track is self-described by frontman Dave Bayley as a ‘conflicted booty-call anthem’, and he goes on to further explains:
I think we’ve all found ourselves in fucked up relationships that make us feel sad and helpless. Not necessarily something romantic – maybe it’s with a family member or a friend. A relationship that we know on some level is going to keep breaking our hearts. We let that person back into our lives over and over again, even though it always ends the same.
Maybe you don’t confront it because you hope it’ll change with time. Or because it’s easier to let it slide and never set boundaries. Maybe you think you deserve that unhappiness. Or maybe you find some strange comfort in the chaos.
This song is about that…about being addicted to chaos. About doing or allowing something self-destructive because on some level you get off on the sadness that comes of it. It’s about wanting to float around and exist inside of that feeling because it has always been familiar to you. It’s something that a lot of people know from growing up in a tense household…so it can feel right to create that dynamic, even if you don’t realise you’re doing it.
