alt-J has a knack for making videos that are stunning, but hard to watch.
In “Pusher,” the main character is an orator of sorts, attempting to persuade a group of disinterested men. He actions in the video grow more and more erratic and then the unspeakable happens…
I don’t want to spoil the ending, but I also realize warning people who this may be a trigger for is more important. The end of the video features a suicide. It’s a pretty gruesome thing to watch, honestly. Admittedly, I watched the ending with one of my eyes closed, so if that kind of imagery makes you uncomfortable I would sit this one out. Just listen to the audio version. It’s much more subdued and absolutely worth it.
Everyone else, the video is below.
