Music Video Monday #18: Broken Bells’ “The Ghost Inside.”

I love the concept of this video. The internal and physical ramifications of failure; the disappointment of illusions; wanting so badly to get somewhere, having everything go wrong and being forced to give up more than you’re able to to get there: it’s a situation I can relate to. And the vibrance of the dream is such a powerful contrast to the drab grayness of reality. Christina Hendricks is in top form, as per usual, and I love that she doesn’t play a typical video vixen, but a woman with depth and drive and desire for something other than a man. Kudos, James Mercer and Danger Mouse, on a video well done.
