Videos we like No1: Minor Victories – A Hundred Ropes


February 22, 2016

Ten seconds of footage stretched out three and something minutes. I couldn’t have put it any better than band member Justin Lockey so rather than repeat in my own words here is what he had to say:

So it’s a one shot.. only actually 10 seconds of real time footage stretched out over minutes, with our humdinger of a tune relentlessly pounding away as the soundtrack! There’s an actual reason for this too! Basically the way I see it, we’re at a point where music videos or as they are most commonly known as nowadays “bits of content for the internets” are so crammed with narrative with an insane and relentless amounts of cuts / editing etc to keep you interested that it’s become the norm to Tony Scott the f**! out of every single frame these days…(we know as we are definitely 100% guilty of this on numerous occasions in the past!) But nowadays to be totally honest it just gives me a massive headache watching music videos most of the time!

So, at the end of the day there’s nothing quite like the simplicity and beauty of a one shot done right… And a bunch of samurai’s emerging from a field and charging towards you at just under 1000 fps in monochrome? Well that’s always gonna look pretty cool whichever way you cut it.

So here’s the video and we think its bloody lovely too. Also worth mentioning is the fact that the band is a bit of a post rock/shoegaze supergroup made up of band members from Slowdive, Mogwai and Editors. Definitely music to my ears!
