Flying Lotus - Never Catch Me (feat. Kendrick Lamar)
The video for Flying Lotus' latest single 'Never Catch Me' is equal parts somber and celebratory. Beautiful transitional shots of an empty morgue humming with ambiance segue seamlessly into a church chapel packed with parishioners.The camera pans to the bodies of two young children cut down in the prime of their life. Just as the song ramps up in intensity, the children leap up out their coffin beds in a phantasmagoric display of dance and acrobatics.
Featuring the directorial talents of Hiro Murai, known for his equally bizarre yet beautiful work with Earl Sweatshirt and Queens of the Stone Age, Never Catch Me is true to the song's sentiment that though life is short, death is only the beginning.
