A little over a month ago, alt-J released an acoustic music video for their song "Matilda." I truly enjoy this video for it's clean and intimate profile of alt-J. The camera travels from face to face while also taking panning shots of the walls that surround the narrow aisle they are sitting in; scattered are a collage of various and colorful buttons.
If this were a 'Pop Up Video' feature, I'm sure one of the bubbles would read something about Joe Newman, lead singer and guitarist, in a button shop. Or maybe I'm the only one who made the odd connection to the childhood campfire song.
If you have never heard of alt-J, do yourself a huge favor and check out the alt-J (∆) artist spotlight featured on our site last month. If you happen to fall in love, be joyful it can be requited when they come to Toronto Mar. 27.
