Music Video: Campbell Hooper aces new video for The Naked & The Famous

Posted by Rob Alderson,

If you like your music videos with a strong narrative structure then this probably isn’t going to float your boat. But if you like a maelstrom of cinematic visuals containing whispered hints of suggested stories, then prepare to fall in love with Campbell Hooper’s new video for The Naked & The Famous. There’s such a richness of imagery in Like Ours and such rapidity in the rate it turns over that no sooner do you think you might have a handle on what is going on in one particular thread when we’re bouncing on to the next scene. All of which makes for an impressionistic masterclass of music video making of the kind we’ve come to expect from Campbell and his design/directing collective Special Problems.
