A Different Kind Of Island...

Hopewell "Island" from Painless Surgery on Vimeo.

This new video from Brooklyn's finest dark cinematic psychedelic rockers : Hopewell is something to be hold. It is a great non pop video with it's use of archived World War II clips are inter spliced with modern scenes. Overall it has a very Kurosawa-esque quality to it. The music perfectly compliments the mood and tone of the song. The director (Art Boonparn who is a friend of the band and has directed videos for The Pains of Being Pure at Heart and Cold Cave ) was inspired by the 1971 Japanese cult film "Throw Away Your Books, Let's Go Into The Streets" from director Shuji Terayama. Below you can check out a clip for the aforementioned film.
