Woodkid – Iron

Video via Vimeo

Oh my word. Check this video for Woodkid‘s “Iron” directed by himself aka Yoann Lemoine. How. Epic. I’m getting flashbacks of the equally jaw-dropping opening credits of Tarsem’s The Fall mixed with my many hours spent playing World of Warcraft—a winning combination. Well done.

Woodkid’s Iron EP is out now and can be found here. Here’s a bit of what you can expect:

We walk with the shadow of Antony and The Johnsons, Woodkid and Anthony could be kindred spirits of the voice. We can also hear the pretty folk influences of New York (“my heart belongs to Brooklyn, “sings Woodkid on the second track on the disc) and a melodic brilliance that leaves more than a glimpse of the song writing talent of Lemoine (which could flirt somewhere between Neil Hannon and Bonnie Prince Billy).

By the way – Yes, Agyness Deyn (Laura Hollins) is totally getting her post-apocalyptic lesbian wood-elf on and that dog is giving some major face but the true star not even mentioned in the credits is Matvey Lykov, in his widely cheek-boned glory, looking positively scrumptious in that Jil Sander marble suit. I guess he got to keep it from the shoot. He is getting zero love on the press release but I see you, Matvey. I see you. You go boy.

Sidenote: I’m trying to get over my World of Warcraft addiction. This is not helping.
