Never Felt Such A Pull Before: Nada Surf on Polyamroy
From Nada Surf’s sixth full-length studio album The Stars Are Indifferent To Astronomy (2012), I give you the music video for my favorite track on the record, “Jules and Jim”
It gently alludes to the classic French New Wave film of the same name. The video brings you into the dreamlike world of three characters who are intertwined and isolated and into three different worlds which are also intertwined and yet isolated. The different perspectives of the three characters and the three worlds seek to evoke the ever changing feelings and roller coaster ride that comes from being a rational being crazy in love – desire, jealousy, security, ecstasy, sadness, beauty and the like, and yet to be able to see clearly outside ones own feelings.
The speed at which you move
It’s weird how you never lose
What can I do when I’m next to you?
I am lost in my mind when you go to sleep
You gain and lose sight
Even under the northern lights
Under the midnight sun will my thoughts still run?
Never felt such a pull before
I’m hypnotized I’m destabilized
I am Jules and Jim I’m me and him
I am all three I am Catherine
