Production designer Jed Hathaway and sculptor Arthur Ganson may very well be two of the greatest visual artists of our time. Tim Burton has got nothing on this crew. Their creative effort on Dead Mans Bones’ latest video for “Dead Hearts” is absolutely stunning in a kooky chill-up-the-spine and smile-to-the-lips kind of way. Of course, they had great concept-themed musicians backing them up. With these powers combined, one of the most stunning videos in some time was created.
Dead Mans Bones, duo Zach Shields and Ryan Gosling (yes, that one), released their freakishly exciting self-titled album on October 6th. And sweet unholy Jesus it proves to be on psychotic realm of disturbia (in the form of children’s prose nonetheless). With assistance from The Silverlake Conservatory of Music Children’s Choir (for some reason, Robin Williams in August Rush comes to mind, hmm…) in tow, this superb project shall prove to be insanely entertaining. And a video like “Dead Hearts” is one of the greatest supporting products they could ever dream up.
