Here’s a video to massage your frontal lobes on a hungover morning. Yet more gold from Brainfeeder- this is Bern Rhythm by Teebs.
It’s apparently a ‘Codeine Remix’; a pretty apt description given the brilliantly narcotic qualities of both track and video. The opening shots bristle with energy, but as the video slows to its climax, it’s as though the song is physically affecting the fairground. The camera starts to pull lazily in and out of focus while the glittering lights from the waltzer mimic Teebs’ rattling production. The final shot sees suspended chairs gently whirling, while the bodies occupying them appear motionless and limp, the track seemingly having worked its sedative effect.
A case of a good song made great by its accompanying video, even if the first few frames do recall a Channel 4 ident… Enjoy.
