Continuing what they started with “Angel And the Fool,” Danger Mouse and The Shins’ James Mercer deliver the conclusion of their spaced out love story with the release of their “Holding On For Life” video. Once again calling on Kate Mara (American Horror Story, House of Cards) and Anton Yelchin (Star Trek, Charlie Bartlett), the Broken Bells duo throw a huge dance party… in space.
When asked about the film, director Jacob Gentry had the following to say to EW:
The last video we had done for “The Ghost Inside” was more like a narrative short film done in a similar way, so we thought this could be a spiritual sequel,” he said. “But we wanted this to be more fantastical, psychedelic — like Logan’s Run and Barbarella — but still live in the Broken Bells universe. The vision for it is really a collaboration between Brian [Burton, a.k.a. Danger Mouse], James, the designer Jacob Escebedo, and myself coming together and vibing out on images and ideas that inspire the album and vice versa.
To make your viewing experience easier, I’ve included both “Angel And the Fool” and “Holding On For Life” below. Enjoy.
