A new music video from Michel Gondry is a rare thing these days, so it’s a treat to sit back and watch this promo for new Metronomy track Love Letters.
Fans of the director’s previous work will not be disappointed with this video: with the band playing inside a hand-painted set, it feels like classic Gondry. It might not be quite a masterpiece in the mould of his past glories for Daft Punk, The White Stripes and Björk, but it’s eminently watchable and perfect for the song.
Gondry will be taking part in a Google Hangout with Metronomy’s Joe Mount tomorrow at 5pm GMT, which will be hosted by Adam Buxton. The talk will be streamed live on the Metronomy YouTube channel, here, and viewers will be able to submit questions in the comments section of the video using the hashtag #loveletters.
