This week’s music video is as fresh as your new year’s resolution. King Krule’s latest music video for “A State Lizard” borrows different elements of old-school cool to recreate a scene from one of Alfred Hitchcock’s works.
Set in black and white and starting with a clip from “Alfred Hitchcock Presents,” Londoner Archy Marshall or better known with his stage handle *King Krule* awes viewers with the neck breaker music video for “A State Lizard.”
Taking a page right off famed director and filmmaker Alfred Hitchcock‘s book, the video is a head turner when it comes to theatrical presentation. King Krule is pictured playing his guitar as he defies gravity in true Hitchcock style. Some parts of the song are NSFW due to profanity but you probably wouldn’t mind as you’re still engrossed with the artist who keeps on singing while he is standing and gliding precariously on the wall. Also, King Krule’s dapper look inspired by film noir detectives is not bad at all.
Creatively done and boasting a fresh sound and look, the video for “A State Lizard” will sure be something that you’d want to watch when you’re looking for the right amount of throwback hits.

Brook talks about finding himself, his work, and shooting with the Lomograhy Petzval Lens in this exclusive interview.
Doug DuBois spent five summers photographing the small neighborhood of Russell Heights in Ireland to capture the essence of coming of age: the inevitable loss of youth and the imminent transition into adulthood. Those four years resulted in his latest book, My Last Day At Seventeen. The book is a visual tale told through a collection of photographs and gives an alternative perspective through a comic narrative around the same subject. This creative combination of two distinct narratives in one book not only works wonderfully in visual terms; it also serves as an essential tool that lets the reader dig deeper into the story being told, making one go back to the book over and over again, yet from a new perspective, every single time.
