Phantom ‘Over’ (Official Video)
Phantom‘s new video for single ‘Over’ is very dark and strange, but in a totally awesome way. The whole video is quite murky, with a lot of smoke and only a brief touch of light.
The video depicts a couple and their disdain as well as their addiction for each other. Viewers do not get to see the faces of them and a large smiley face covers the male, whilst the hair covers the female. We get to see the anger they have between themselves as well as the affection, but it’s limited.
Every now and then, a unicorn appears and is flying through the clouds. You also get to see Hanna Toivonen in parts of the video as well as some seriously cool doubling effects and colored filters. The whole video is really interesting in the way that it blurs what is real and what is not.
The video is eclectic, but that is what makes it so hauntingly beautiful and ultimately, it helps you get in touch with what the track ‘Over’ is about. I highly rate this clip and I for one am really keen for what Phantom brings out next.
