‘All of Me’, the new video by New York duo Tanlines, has been directed by Julian Barratt.
Taken from the group’s debut album Mixed Emotions, the video is the work of The Mighty Boosh‘s Barratt in collaboration with Adult Swim.
In the words of Matador, who are hosting the video on their site: “The collaboration between Barratt and the band was a combination of brazen wishful thinking and good luck. Tanlines, who are influenced by Barratt, toyed with the possibility of listing the Mighty Boosh as a creative partner in their liner notes.
“Word reached Barratt, who after listening to an early version of the album realized ‘All of Me’ served as a perfect musical counterpoint to some of the imagery he was interested in exploring, and an opportunity to experiment making music videos. So shockingly, he dove in.
Barratt says, “At the time I wrote the treatment, I was watching a particular film by Fabrice Du Welz called ‘The Ordeal’ which is a really good, strange, macabre film with some really interesting movement and dance bits in that…I’m always trying to do anything between comedy and horror. Because you have such a strong flavor with Tanlines’ music, it’s quite fun to offset that with bleak imagery.”
