Bucharest-based rock band Eyedrops just released their new music video – PREZENT – which is brilliant, zen and warming. Literally. The main character burns in his car.
Until the second part of the video I lived with the impression that the Romanian band brought together Mumford and Sons with Jon Snow’s Ghost. Which would’ve been cool enough. But after listening their lyrics poetry (in Romanian, sorry guys) on repeat for half an hour and watching the music video’s ending with my brains set on dream-mode, I came to the conclusion that the video is obviously more than that.
Produced by Miche Marcu and directed by Paul Manolescu, the video is a metaphor full of YOLO and Carpe Diem references. It’s easier to just let go than to face reality, that’s true, but it doesn’t have to be that way, because you’re not alone. This would be one of the video’s messages.
I’ve never thought that dying in a burning car would be a good way to go. That’s past tense, because it’s definitely my choice now. If I’ll ever be in a coma or if somehow you see me dying, put me in a car and set it on fire. With some Into the Wild soundtracks in the background please.
What did you think of the video?
