“Love Songs for Robots” (video) What beats beneath the metal chest plates of the automaton sect? That’s just one of many ideas explored in the new fanciful and awe-inspiring video for the title track to Canadian songwriter Patrick Watson‘s recent Love Songs for Robots.
The video, crafted by Chris Lavis and Maciek Szczerbowski, focuses on the relationship between a wound-up dancer and a cog-clanking admirer. Paired with an elegant backdrop of piano and Watson’s whispered whimsy, they play-out a routine that is equal measures graceful and rigid. Whatever the true nature of the piece, lets just say out sparks are flying everywhere during the climax.
