Beth Ditto has a big voice, which is well-matched by the big sound that Gossip has in their new song “Perfect World”. The video evokes a time when we burned witches at the stake and were generally in the dark about most things. The imagery of fire, long hooded robes, and sepia tones are broken down when Ditto’s character is able to get to the stained glass and light begins streaming in. By getting to the light, colors permeate the scenes and things aren’t as dreary.
Moral of the story? Don’t be kept in the dark even if you think it’s a picture “Perfect World”. Seek knowledge and colors!
