New Interpol Video - "Rest My Chemistry" (Unofficial, But Endorsed!)

By theajaysharma

We've all seen unofficial music videos -- clips that folks who dig a band make because ... they dig a band. Some work out great like "My Body Is A Cage" or HEALTH's "Heaven," and others are better left to the dustbin. Well, Aaron Koblin, a visual artist/Interpol fan, put together a tech-y video for "Rest My Chemistry" with the help of his production company, Blip Boutique. He wanted to adapt the technology he uses for his art to make a kind of art piece for the song. As the production company noted:

We wanted to do something for this song that was not specifically intended for broadcast, but that was more of an art piece that would live and grow primarily online. We wanted to use a new technology using data mapping to create an abstract video.

The result looks like biological -- or, right, chemical -- fireworks. Or Tron. Interpol was contacted about the project, liked it, and endorsed it. Does that make it official? We're not sure, but it's definitely a striking accompaniment to those starry, Pixie-ish guitar licks and Paul's baritone. - Source
