Oasis – “Falling Down” (video)

Oasis’ latest video off last year’s Dig Out Your Soul is something of an aural departure for the Mancunian rockers. The mood is darkly breezy with a dancey undercurrent. Noel Gallagher sings this one and his rather more reserved vocals — compared to his brother Liam — suit the vibe here. The video was directed by Wiz and kicks off to the strains of Elgar’s “Land of Hope and Glory” — perhaps more of a British anthem than even “God Save the Queen” — before squiggly electronics emerge and song proper kicks off and depicts life in the aristocratic spotlight.
