oh james

i posted blake´s first single back in june and now that his debut album is about to hit, (feb.7th) this video is just the right amount of adecuate.
if you simultaneously listen to the song and watch the video it´s curious how the images take you into the depth of the song. the lyrics are simple, but the instrumental layers are intricate. i became hypnotized as the image blurred in and out, and as the colors shifted from palette to palette... "background" gradually intensified.
a part from being visually interesting, you´d never link his face, to his voice. this subtle serenade transports to some forgotten time, in some forgotten past.
