WHY? – These Hands / January Twenty Something Music Video

Joint video for “These Hands” and “January Twenty Something” off WHY?’s latest album, Eskimo Snow. To me, “These Hands” was just about a perfect intro to the disc, and I’m glad that its nostalgic tones are dreamily placed alongside the playfulness of “January Twenty Something” in this two-part story. Neither would have worked so well without the other, and not to get all film school student or art critic on you, but the juxtaposition of these videos seems to highlight just some of the important themes of the album, oh yes.

Mostly, though, I’m awaiting a video for “Against Me”. Hopefully it comes soon!

Video directed by Ben Barnes.
