When I saw the De La Muerte treatment for the video of The Angel of the North, I knew straight away that they were the right directors to make it, going beyond the narrative, at times subverting it, keeping its mystery and turning it almost into a kind of visual treasure hunt. I’ll leave it up to people’s imaginations to decide what the song is about, but the clues are there in the video if you look hard enough.
