Music Video Vendredi – Magenta Skycode’s ‘Kipling’

Posted September 16, 2011 by Rachelle

“Kipling” the song title of a poignant  yet simply beautiful music video was contrived for the Finnish Indie rock band, Magenta Skycode.  The musical rhythm complimented with the fabled plot of the video leaves meaning to be a construct of the viewers’ creative imagination.  The sense of fear that is portrayed in the dog chasing the […]
