Song of the Day #1,665: ‘Lupine Dominus’ – Thee Oh Sees

oh_sees_lupine_dominusThis is the second video of the week to feature both a strip club and gay sex. One more and we’ve got ourselves a trend.

I’m more and more impressed by the cinematography and direction of these clips. Today’s video has some beautiful camerawork, with Scorsese-esque Steadicam shots exploring its seedy location.

The action follows a young man who comes to the club looking to hook up and the rather gruff, homophobic man who takes him up on the offer.

Was this a pre-arranged meeting or a chance encounter? The man’s angry actions at the bar could be an act, but he carries them on in the bathroom. Maybe at that point he’s just trying to fool himself?

I will assume that every mirror crashes through the moon
You will seem to now and then to cover up your head
And we’ll see til after when you will see tears of blood
I will stand and ask to defend to the beating of your heart

I will sit down as I think til I can taste the heat
We’ll all taste it, the human faces, eyes will drift asleep
I will say with some dismay you bury your dead story
You will be the omen as I give your heads, your hands, your feet

I will assume that every mirror crashes through the moon
You will seem to now and then to cover up your head
And we’ll see til after when you will see tears of blood
I will stand and ask to defend to the beating of your heart

    Quite the provocative video, but I find the song to be almost unlistenable.
