Inspired by Where The Wild Things Are, the video for Metronomy’s latest single, The Upsetter, tells the story of two unconventional lovers. Featuring a feral bearded lady and her beau, a creature made of sticks and dirt, the video follows their first flickers of romance, deep in the dense, unflinching woodland. The video was directed Californian trio Encyclopedia Pictura, reminiscent of the campfire tale told in the song.
