Cold Mailman – My Recurring Dream

[jwplatform 8t4JgTW0-Pqiywodl]

Cold Mailman’s music video for “My Recurring Dream” carries you straight through a long series of rooms and scenes. Starting in the dim blue light of a hospital, you are pulled past struggling patients in beds and into a brighter room where excited children pour through a door. A doctor swivels a decorated partition around and you are thrust into a photograph of a girl on a dock. The clip is played backwards, and fireworks folds into themselves as she magically yanks a man out of the water without touching him. The camera zooms into a spiral staircase on his tee shirt, and you’re suddenly there, following someone as they wander downstairs. The next transition pulls you into a TV and onto a train, where a woman in a yellow dress twirls seductively down the aisles and then closes a door in your face. The next scene depicts piles of cars in a junkyard, which suddenly come to life and blast you with their headlights. People sit somberly in the cars going nowhere, but you keep moving along, zooming through dozens of other captivating scenes.
