With the release of the video for Matthew and The Atlas’ new single, “Pale Sun Rose,” the British band combines their thought provoking lyrics and sound with a story that is equally as thought provoking.
Directed by Neil Coxhill, this video stars veteran actor Charlie Cox (Boardwalk Empire) in both roles. Cox is a fisherman that finds something floating in the water and what follows is a short but interesting tale, creating the opportunity for the viewer to rethink how they see things. Both the story and the music can be interpreted in a variety of ways, allowing any viewer to take what they will from them. This is what makes the video great, as viewers can choose to examine things from a surface level or travel to a much deeper place. So for a video that is interesting on so many levels, check out Matthew and The Atlas’ “Pale Sun Rose.”
