Video: Neneh Cherry and The Thing, “Accordion”
My review of Neneh Cherry and The Thing’s upcoming album, The Cherry Thing, is scheduled to appear in our August issue. Last month, we heard the band’s version of Suicide’s “Dream Baby Dream.” Now we can check out the video for “Accordion,” a selection taken from MF Doom and Madlib’s 2004 album, Madvillainy.
Director Ted Says explains the video’s creepy look and feel: “We wanted to create an atmosphere that would sit well with the unpredictable music of The Thing and be playful yet creepy. I didn’t want to restrict Neneh too much eithershe had to have a platform to do her thing undisturbed. Shooting in darkness amongst the trees with a bunch of lasers, it was, then.”
