YOU GOTTA SEE THIS: “Adversity” by Beach Fossils
The video for Beach Fossils‘ “Adversity” is a dreamy, surrealist montage. There are recurring images of nude women and fruit—sometimes an orange falls through mirrors, or a waif-like girl gathers water from a misty swamp, but there are few other connecting threads. The hodgepodge of scenes is calming rather than jarring, however. Whether slinking along the New York cityscape or stopping on a raccoon carcass (I’m not kidding), the camera fluidly melds the disparate images and ideas.
