Mew: Repeaterbeater

The historic and vital COP15 climate conference opened today in Copenhagen today - let's hope the many delegates can come up with something other than empty promises.

And speaking of Copenhagen - Mew are from the Copenhagen suburb Hellerup, just north of the capital and right on the coast.

The video for "Repeaterbeater" was directed by Martin de Thurah. It's a very cool short that has a Thomas Vinterberg/Lars von Trier feel to it. Apparently the band was under hypnosis during part of the video shoot - the guy in the white suit with the cane is not an actor but the real thing!
