THE OCEAN: “ROOTS AND LOCUSTS” AND THE INDUCTION OF SEIZURES
Metal Injection premiered a new video for The Ocean today, “Roots and Locusts,” and while the song is good, holy shit do I have no idea what’s going on in this clip. The edits actually seem well-timed with the music, but the cuts go by so quickly it’s hard to see anything. And what I can see… is there a unifying theme I’m missing, or is it just a bunch of random shit? Someone who’s not me should really go through it frame-by-frame and try to figure it out.
I do really like the thing towards the end with the textbook and the heart, though. That was kinda neat and easy-to-follow.
“Roots and Locusts” comes off The Ocean’s Anthropocentric, which is out now on Metal Blade.
