A visual and musical journey that challenges the limits of the sea and melancholy.
Depeche Mode immerses us in a unique visual landscape with the recent release of its video “Before We Drown”directed by the renowned Anton Corbijn. In this emotional piece, a covered character ventures into a treacherous sea, creating a captivating atmosphere that perfectly complements the track. “Before We Drown” from his album Memento Mori.
This is not the first meeting between the band and Corbijn for Memento Mori; They previously collaborated on the videos of “Wagging Tongue” and “Ghosts Again”.
The lyrics of the song, deep and evocative, immerse us in a reflection on distance and the need to move forward, the aesthetics of the video go hand in hand and they make a brilliant combo.
The chorus, powerful and resonant, tells us about getting up and moving forward before succumbing to the waves of destiny.
The instruments break immerses us even further in the experience, culminating in a shocking ending that reinforces the central message: “First we stand up, then we fall down. We have to move forward, before we drown.”
Depeche Mode It not only offers us a musical experience, but an artistic journey that fuses the visual and the auditory, transporting us to the depths of its emotions and reflections.
