Video of the Day: Field Studies
I actually have a small collection of fortunes plucked from fortune cookies over the years, so this video from Nottingham's Field Studies has obvious surface level appeal. On a deeper level, the clip for "Fear on the Rise" shows fortunes in degrees from the banal to the cutting ("Slut," "It's Your Fault," etc.) that play off the song's brooding, melancholic appeal. And I do so love a bit of a clamor, which the end of the song definitely delivers. Both are rather engaging, and I've got plenty of time for both song and video.
