Video: James Blake - Lindisfarne
James Blake - Lindisfarne

This video is actually for both tracks 'Lindisfarne I' and 'Lindisfarne II.' This makes sense given that the songs blend into each other and seem more like a single song split down the middle. To say the video is intriguing may be a run for understatement of the month.
It details a bizarre ritual, between a group of young friends in a countryside house, that involves swapping bodily fluids. Lots of sun-drenched shots, wordless action and cinematography and camerawork that recalls a Swedish film-making style.
