Music Video: The Sound Of Arrows - Conquest
It's rare that I'll dedicate an entire post to a music video, but there are some artists (very few, actually...) that produce videos of such a consistent quality that I look forward to them just as much as new music. The Sound Of Arrows released my favorite album of 2011 and are now on their fifth music video from it. Conquest was released earlier today and follows its predecessors with three minutes of gorgeous, 80's inspired fantasy imagery. Each video these guys produce is like a mini-movie. Strung together one after another makes for an incredibly strong marriage of sound and image. They have such an indelible, unique vision for themselves, which is increasingly rare in music these days. If you haven't picked up the album yet, you're doing yourself a disservice. At the very least, go watch all their videos on youtube--preferably in a row.
