alt-J Premiere New Video for “Pusher” and dates for 2015

alt-J premiered the video for “Pusher” – the latest from their album This Is All Yours. The music video is about a man trying to speak louder to a uninformed society, addressing both freedom of choice, and love and hate, by Division Paris with direction by Thomas Rhazi,.

The original conception was thought up by the frontman, Joe Newman and director Thomas Rhazi. Thomas says: “The original idea was Joe’s one. 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 70’s preaching for their own reasons and beliefs. I wanted this film to be very humanist and as deep and simple as it could be.”

The message that alt-J and Thomas deliver is not only penetrating and thought provoking: “The hero does the most excessive act because he can’t do anything else – shaking up people’s minds in those dark and sad times”, says Thomas.
