Can't Believe the Way We Flow

by Alice May


James Blake: “Can't Believe the Way We Flow” - 4 mins 43s

Frank Lebon directs this hypnotically frenetic video for James Blake's love song to partner Jameela Jamil. Featuring real-life couples (not necessarily romantically involved) in random moments - ranging from bondage sessions to hospital visits to shared cigarettes - it captures both the banal and the profound; and reminds us how broad a church love can be.

This ephemeral montage is beautifully edited by Lebon, too. Despite the diversity of the people and the situations he stitches together a myriad similar images of handholding and kissing, as if to demonstrate that underneath we all long for affection and contact.
