Eels Unveil Rusty Pipes Video

Wednesday, 13 June 2018 Written by Laura Johnson

Eels have shared a video for Rusty Pipes.

The track is lifted from their latest LP, ‘The Deconstruction’, which came out earlier this year. Speaking about the video, director Matthias Hoene said:

“When I first listened to the song, I really responded to the theme of being out of sync with your environment and the story almost wrote itself. The hard work was to structure the story to be perfectly in sync with the song, and get every storytelling beat right while shooting on our tight 2 day schedule. I initially sketched the costume roughly on my iPad and then Yungah Lee a super talented concept artist I’ve worked with fleshed out my idea. Finally we had a team of model makers in Prague make the costume from old bits of metal and pipes and ship it over to us in LA. I was doing the final VFX shot myself on a plane to LA and the person sitting next to me watched what I was doing and asked if I was a drainpipe salesman, which I consider as a job done sign of approval.”

It can sometimes be difficult for an artist to capture the zeitgeist. Even if they know what to say, they often struggle to find the right way to say it. Not so for Matt Healy and his 1975, who haven’t just captured the zeitgeist—they’ve wrestled it into submission, stuffed it in a cage and made it perform tricks for our amusement.
