Watch Metronomy’s Trippy Michel Gondry-Directed Clip for ‘Love Letters’

By Shannon Carlin

For Metronomy‘s latest video “Love Letters,” the band was looking to do something a little outside the box while being trapped in a box. So it’s no surprise that they enlisted Michel Gondry—the man behind the White Stripes’ “Fell in Love With a Girl” and Bjork’s “Bachelorette”—to direct the kitschy clip.

Dressed in matching maroon blazers, the band gets a little cheesy for the performance clip that has them contained to one little box, that is painted to look like a an old timey recording studio.

But if you blink you might miss that this little box is really something much more special. Gondry manages to turn it into a darkened forest by turning off the lights. Then it’s a busy city street and the band is playing in an orange van. But no matter were they are, the foursome is going to be writing love letters.
