Trash/Thrash Tuesday: Words That Burn – “Mirror Perfect Mannequin”

Oh hi friends, how’s it going this week?

How’s life been treating you?  Are you making the death march to semester end?  Me too boo, me too.

Anywho, I figured I’d pop in for this Trash/Thrash Tuesday to check out the new track from Words That Burn, an Irish metal band.

The band had this to say about their new video for Mirror Perfect Mannequin:

“This is the second video we have done with director Andrew Browne, the first one being Unalive last year. He is by far one of the most professional and easy to work with people we have dealt with since the band began. From pre-production to final edit, he kept us in the loop throughout the entire process. This video was a bigger production than Unalive, more people involved & more going on in the background but the entire crew made the process as pain-free and enjoyable as possible. It was also our first time working with a choreography/dance team.  Something that we were excited and apprehensive about.  When we initially came up with the concept for the video, we had to make sure that the tone of the song was captured through the girl’s movement.  After seeing the final cut, we feel it was executed flawlessly.  The girls Amy Ford and Emma Larney worked off each other extremely well so our DOP Patrick Clarke was able to get the very best out of every performance. All in all, we are very proud of this video. The song is one of the strongest on the album so we needed to do it justice and we feel like that is exactly what we have achieved.”

So I wasn’t entirely sure about this video, mostly because I had never heard this band, but, I really dug the aesthetic.  There was parts of the song that didn’t work for me, mostly because at points I felt like there was two distinct songs going on, but it actually ended up working pretty well in an odd way and hoo-boy, was that lead singer a babe…

Something for the ladies on this Trash/Thrash Tuesday I suppose.

And with that in mind, let’s pop this video into the Thrash pile and throw on our best white dress, shall we?
