Everything Everything - Duet

Directed by Jonathan Higgs

Each track by Everything Everything is ornate, carefully constructed.

Each note is well placed, with the band favouring an astutely thought through approach. New album 'Arc' is a case in point - all sharp elbows and about turns, it veers and soars to it's own intricately wrought path.

So it should come as no surprise that Everything Everything pay a little bit of attention to their visual representation. 'Duet' recently received the go ahead for the video treatment, with Jonathan Higgs coming up with the idea and gearing the direction.

A dramatic, post-apocalyptic video, Higgs describes it thus: "This song is about being with someone you love at the end of the world, even if it's just the world that you both share. I wanted to do something visually related to the ash/concrete bodies found at the eruption of Mt. Vesuvius in Pompeii. They are amazingly powerful to look at and formed by a totally natural, destructive force. The bodies of the people are huddled together while there is death literally raining down. That's what I wanted it to feel like".

Does he succeed? Judge for yourself...

Watch it now.
