The Dodos - "Fables" (video)

by Tyler Gould

30 September 2009

 

The video for The Dodos’ “Fables”, from the recently released Time to Die allows you to listen to the song and see what the band looks like at the same time. It is for the most part without flourish until the bridge, the most interesting bit of the song itself, when confetti falls from the ceiling while the band plays in slow motion. The music is fine, but the confetti is unevenly spaced and could honestly be a little more colorful—yet another wasted opportunity to get people excited about confetti like they must have been the first time somebody cut paper into tiny pieces and dropped it from a great height.
