Having released the superb, I Don’t Think I Can Do This Anymore, as well as selling out the historic London Roundhouse, it seems that UK emo mob, MOOSE BLOOD are set to paint the UK blue this year.
Can We Stay Like This was written by vocalist Eddie Brewerton about the time he spent with his wife whilst out recording in LA. However, there are some darker undertones, director Zelinsky said, “I loved working with Moose Blood on this one. They had this great idea for an image of love lost that served as the jumping off point for the video. We open on a couple on the run á la True Romance, although in this telling they’ve met their demise. That image really plays contrary to what the song is actually about—wanting to stay in a perfect moment with the one you love.”
“IT’S wanting to stay in a perfect moment with the one you love…”
The video captures a contradiction in staying in a perfect moment with the dark opening sequence, according to Zelinsky.
“The video is about getting back to that place as described in the song and the desire to undo that which can’t be undone. There’s a perfect moment for this couple that’s the polar opposite of where we find them and it’s impossible to get there because time only runs in one direction—although not in film, he continued. “That’s the magic of the video, taking them back to that moment. By playing out the action in reverse time, the lyrics aren’t ironic to the images anymore and can actually be taken quite literally. They’re being brought back to life as the song asks “Can we stay like this?”
