“Jamelia” by Caribou

The future of music, right here. One of the most amazing songs and great videos that I experienced as of late. Only listen with headphones, and fucking LOUD.

I think the music is very interesting. Without the lyrics it’s similar as many of the international sound mixes featured on the Putumayo label. For instance the crossover http://www.putumayo.com/en/catalog_item.php?album_id=88

But let me think here. Perhaps I’m wrong, but this is what I got from the music and video……………

……Guy knows girl, guy is sad, so guy murders girl…..

An old theme in music with a new twist ? Somewhat disturbing.

Help me out with this.

I don’t think they know each other, it’s just that they are out enjoying nature in the mist. But the woman actually enjoys nature, while the man represents the jungle and darkness in nature. So he approaches her, she sees the dagger, she runs, and eventually he gets her.

Interesting allegory. I looked at the lyrics online and didn’t get that impression. Thanks. BTW, you’ve got a great “site” here. Lot’s of good information. Keep it coming.

A lot of the times the music video has nothing to do with the lyrics… Same thing for my own music videos too…
