comments
"I canít give too much away, but the video is a little departure from normal work as a director for me, but really looking forward to it. We will be heading down to Paris, across to Berlin, to create a surreal and sinister video." - Damien Reeves

The song Blindfolded was the teaser release for the Big Music album. The video was also a teaser, eschewing band or narrative for a reflected landscape taken from the streets of Paris and Berlin. It was surreal Ė insofar that it was unexpected and the group didnít feature Ė but it didnít match Jim's dark lyrics and missed the "sinister" attribute wanted by the director.

Much seemed to be taken from a car window or train. The video flicked from horizontal to vertical mirroring, yielding odd perspectives and washed out landscapes. It fitted the music Ė but did the music fit the video?
