Watch James Blake's Video for "Overgrown"
- Words: James Eaton
Though our review of Overgrown proved that we're not so much in love with the new album by sullen UK troubadour James Blake as we are the work on some of his past 12"s and EPs, this video for that LP's title track nonetheless has us intrigued. The decidedly dark and cinematic piece finds the singer/songwriter/producer waking from his bed in a remote cabin to slowly and deliberately walk to the edge of a seaside cliff, amassing a group of hooded followers on his journey. We're not entirely sure what to make of it all, but it makes for an interesting companion to one of Overgrown's better tracks.
