alt-J share new clip for "Pusher"

24 February 2015, 14:58 | Written by Laurence Day

alt-J have unleashed the visual accompaniment to This Is All Yours​ cut, "Pusher".

The video "focuses on a man trying to speak louder to a uninformed society, addressing both freedom of choice, and love and hate."

It was directed by Thomas Rhazi, who said of the clip: "The original idea was Joe's [Newman, alt-J frontman]. It was about a guy breaking his neck in a very poetic way. We spoke about the British Speaker’s Corners – all those men and women in the late '70s preaching for their own reasons and beliefs. I wanted this film to be very humanist and as deep and simple as it could be... the hero does the most excessive act because he can’t do anything else – shaking up people’s minds in those dark and sad times.”

This Is All Yours is out now on Infectious.

Check out "Pusher" below.
