James Blake has released a dreary new video for the equally dreary song “Overgrown,” the title track off his new album, which just came out yesterday.
The video finds Blake in an abandoned cabin surrounded by an ominous-looking forest. As the clip progresses, Blake leaves the cabin and is followed by dancing grim reapers as he walks toward the ocean. Where is James Blake going? Why are these scary dudes following him? Does James Blake ever smile? I don’t really know what director Nabil was getting at, but this is a really creative video that leaves you feeling a little distressed by the end of it. Check it out below.
