Bites – Sine

[jwplatform ljY9EcjE-Pqiywodl]

In this video for “Sine” by Bites, subtle design elements make a ghastly setting just the right dosage of weird. There are a lot of unnerving components to this video, but they pull it off beautifully, and without pushing it over the edge. The music coolly propels us into an extremely strange school where professors pop pills, schoolgirls carry pet rats in lunch box-shaped cages, and prickly porcupines protrude from cafeteria lunches (talk about mystery meat). We won’t give away the plot, but there is much more experimenting than educating going on behind closed doors here, with plenty of wicked moments to send a shiver up your spine. The song itself is surprisingly chill, which contrasts nicely with the sinister atmosphere. As strange as it all may seem, the uniform gray-blue color spectrum helps keep the weirdness at bay, and the style of the video is so spooky-good it’s hard not to get into it.
