It took them 4 weeks to make this new music video for Grizzly Bear’s song While You Wait for the Other. Last time, I was admiring the video of  Two Weeks. This time, the vid is even better. The color used for it is great. The animation and the beauty in each frames leaves me dreaming wide awake. A masked man holds a rabbit on his knees and has a parrot on his head. Behind him, a ladder, two raquets and a table… I just love the atmosphere and the energy which comes out of it. I hope you like it too.

The Lyrics / les paroles :

while you wait for the others
to make it all worthwhile
all your useless pretensions
are weighing on my time
you could beg for forgiveness
as long as you like
or just wait out the evening
and always ask me why
yes you’ll only leave me dry
so ill ask you kindly to make your way

and what was there
the perfect glare
we all fall through

while you wait on the answers
that ill pretend to find
keeping up with emotions
still occupies our time
you could hope for substance
as long as you like
or just wait out the evening
and always ask me why
yes youll always ask me why
ill ask you kindly to make your way

and what was left
the perfect glare
we all fall through

and all we want

and what was there
and what was there
and what wasnt there
