Look and Listen: The Chemical Brothers’ Sometimes I Feel So Deserted

chemical brothers I feel so deserted video

Directed by Ninian Doff, this new video for the Chemical Brothers song ‘Sometimes I feel So Deserted’ is truly a beautiful narrative. The combination of a little Walking Dead, a little Mad Max, a little Breaking Bad, a nod to The Wizard of Oz and a lot of nicely shot footage are worth a look.

The Chemical Brothers’ Sometimes I Feel So Deserted

While we’ve seen a million hulking zombies dragging a lame leg, the unexpected choice of coloring the film with a cool blue cast despite the fact that the entire video takes place in an obviously dry desert, is an example of some of the inspiring choices for the video’s production in which everything from the direction to the makeup deserves kudos.

If you’re not familiar with The Chemical Brothers, the song’s lyrics may seem ridiculous. A mere a repeat of the two lines “And sometimes you feel so deserted, But hold on cause help is on the way” – but it’s their music arrangements for which they are known. Look and listen and you’ll understand.

The song, Sometimes I feel So Deserted, is from their newest album ‘Born In The Echoes‘ and is out now
