Brooding, cinematic orchestrations and twisted tales of madness and desperation made the Danger Mouse-Daniele Luppi album Rome one of 2011’s most surprising and arresting releases. Now the producer extraordinaire and Italian composer are back with an equally dark and tortured video for the standout cut from that album, the song “Two Against One.”
Directed by Chris Milk, with vocals by Jack White, the video features stunning animations by artist Anthony Francis Sheppard. Sheppard’s stark, mostly black-and-white images twist and morph into sometimes hideous, blood-stained figures, reminiscent of the avant-garde work of illustrator Gerald Scarfe, whose animations appeared most prominently in Pink Floyd’s 1979 film The Wall.
According to director Chris Milk, the “Two Against One” video is only a small piece of a much larger project to come.
Who’s cuter, Ryan or a Puppy?
