The Horrors premiere thermal imagery visuals for 'Ghost'
With direction by in/out, The Horrors have released their arty and er, ghostly, new video for 'Ghost', a track taken from last year’s 'V' album.
Speaking about the arresting video, the directing duo (whose previous work includes videos for Slowdive and Hercules & Love Affair) tell how The Horrors’ brief talked of "madness and redemption; disguises and hidden worlds; and a feeling of being swept away. Thermal imagery helped us represent the body at an unsettling crossroads between the familiar and the unknown. Penetrating beneath the skin, it serves as a reminder of the fragility below."
"We wanted a video that represented the song visually and encapsulated the ambiguity of the lyrics," the bsnd add. "We felt that in/out perfectly captured the tense feeling of the track and created one of our favourite videos to date."
