This video begins with one of the most beautiful shots that comprise it, and gradually the dancers make their way into view. Where their introduction comes with dynamic subtlety, their performance is equally bold. The lighting changes drastically as the song does, pushing the mood from a soulful, introspective, blues influenced moment into a louder, more ominous one. The mastery and manipulation of such simple elements lends power to the overwhelming notion that music and dance are as essential to human life as light, water, and air.
