If there was an art to capturing the various stages of heartbreak, the video for Colin Cowan & the Elastic Stars’ video for “Whispers to Rockefeller” has perfected it.~Asapmusicblog
“Paul Anthony and Cam MacLeod are a couple unraveling in this melancholy bit of heartbreak, which climaxes with the eerily beautiful visual of fiery mannequin heads bouncing down stone steps.”~CBC
The video is an interesting vignette, and very well done. I feel sorry for the mannequin wig heads, though. They are always the ones that suffer.~Ride The Tempo
For whatever reason we had a bunch of these mannequin heads and we felt like they needed to be worked into something special. One night we went out with a pile of gasoline and lit them on fire and kicked them down a staircase and captured it in beautiful slow motion. We had that footage on a hard drive somewhere and didn’t know what to do with it until Colin Cowan and the Elastic Stars requested a music video.
We built a narrative around dealing with lost love and created a stylish vignette of the emotions one goes through to get over it. We hired some actors, found a few more heads and lit some stuff on fire again.
