Manchester Orchestra have always used the classic themes of love, misery, loss, joy, or emotional fixation. But, their entrancing and graphic video for “The Only One” is a track on a whole new level of estranged convictions. It is the first piece in what will be an 11 video collection – one video per song from their much anticipated album, Mean Everything To Nothing, due for release on April 21st. A wonderful concept.
“The Only One” is accompanied with a peculiar collection of raw and disturbing imagery as well as a pain soaked theme throughout the experience of said video. Manchester Orchestra are a band of merry men who work hard and creatively at everything they do. And the evolution, and collaboration with Destroy Rock Inc., of this magnificent project, is another example of their prominent ability to be bold and full of brilliant expressions of life. As well as being void of unnecessary casual conflicts that tend to arise when promoting one’s work. And these crafty brutes should be commended for excellent decisions.
