Spiritualized – Hey Jane (NSFW)

By Echydo

The British space rock band, Spiritualized, released its new album Sweet Heart Sweet Light on April 19, 2012. They chose the second track, Hey Jane, to front their album promotion with a powerful music video directed by AG Rojas.

The single itself is a nine-minute, neatly produced piece of garage space rock. In it, lead singer Jason Pierce, describes a “troubled soul” that “ain’t got no time to make no mistakes” and “ain’t got no time to mess [his] head”, but for whom “[he’s] got a love for anyway”.

The music video can only be described as a whirlwind, steadily gaining momentum until it climaxes in a breathtaking downward spiral. It is guaranteed to leave you speechless for a few seconds when it ends and to haunt you, in a good way, for a few days afterwards. Please be aware that it is not safe for work (NSFW) since it showcases mature content, including nudity and violence.

Hey Jane is the perfect soundtrack for the stark day-in-the life scenario played by Tyra Sanchez (winner of the second season of reality TV show RuPaul’s Drag Race).

Without further ado, here is the video.
