Clip Of The Week: n° 5 28/12/2009

L'ultimo "Clip Of The Week" dell'anno è dedicato al nuovo video ufficiale di "11th Dimension", singolo estratto da "Phrazes For The Young", l'album d'esordio solista di Julian Casablancas. Il video (rilasciato pochi giorni fa sulla web-tv "Babelgum") e la canzone ricordano un pò le atmosfere anni '80, con la giacca al neon del cantante e i sinth sempre presenti. Un brano orginale quindi, dove il mix tra la voce di Casablancas e le percussioni digitali sembra distante anni luce dallo stile musicale a cui Julian ci aveva abituato con gli Strokes, ma che sicuramente non lascerà deluso nessuno, e soddisferà appieno anche chi lo aveva apprezzato in precedenza con la sua band. Dopo il post troverete come sempre il video con il testo. Buona visione!

I'll just nod, I've never been so good at shaking hands
I live on the frozen surface of a fireball
Where cities come together, to hate each other in the name of sport
America, nothing is ever just anything
I looked up to you, but you thought I would look the other way

And you hear, what you want to hear
And they take what they want to take...

Don't be sad, won't ever happen like this anymore
So whens it coming? This life's new great movement that I can join
It won't end here, your faith has got to be greater than your fear

Forgive them even if they are not sorry
All the vultures, bootleggers at the door waiting
Your are looking for your own voice, but in others

While it leaves you trapped in another dimension

Drop your guard, you don't have to be smart all of the time
I've got a mind full of blanks. I need to go somewhere new fast
And don't be shy, oh no, at least deliberately
No one really cares or wonders why anymore
Oh, I've got music, coming out of my hands and feet and kisses...

That is how it once was done
All the dreamers on the run

Forgive them even if they are not sorry
All the vultures, bootleggers at the door waiting
Were so quick to point out our own flaws in others
Complicated, mammals on the wings of robots
If you believe in this world then no one has died in vain

But don't you dare get to the top and not know what to do.
