Alt-J Debuts “Pusher” Video, Adds More Tour Dates
Credit: Gabriel GreenAlt-J has premiered the video for their This Is All Yours song, “Pusher.” The largely acoustic track receives a rather moody video treatment, featuring a man trying to preach to a largely uninterested public, becoming so angry he breaks his own neck, which is about as pleasant as it sounds. You can watch the “Pusher” video on YouTube.
“The original idea was Joe’s,” says director Thomas Rhazi, referring to Alt-J frontman Joe Newman. “It was about a guy breaking his neck in a very poetic way. We spoke about the British Speaker’s Corners — all those men and women in the late 70s preaching for their own reasons and beliefs. I wanted this film to be very humanist and as deep and simple as it could be.”
