Video: The Black Madonna "A Jealous Heart Never Rests"

Publish date:

Maybe it was the intention of director James Murray to draw a stark contrast in his video for Black Madonna's "A Jealous Heart Never Rests," as one is left to wonder just why there is so little actual movement in this clip for such a dancefloor-beckoning house tune. Pulled from the recent Lady of Sorrows EP for the fledging Argot imprint, the tune's simple skip and effervescent synth melodies are paired with slow-motion images of two men submerged in seperate tubs of bath water, emerging only to be choked by a barrage of arms from off-camera assailants. Sure, it's pretty damn "arty," but sometimes you have to go out on a limb to keep people intrigued for eight-plus minutes, and Murray has certainly accomplished that.
