MUSIC: Woodkid Loves You

The video for Woodkid’s latest single, “I Love You,” hit the Internet yesterday, first in Germany, then Iceland, moving slowly across the Atlantic until it was finally available to view in North America last night. The video is linked to Yoann Lemoine’s previous clips, opening on the broken body on the schoolboy warrior from “Run Boy Run.” But it abruptly departs from that narrative, such as it is, as well as from the visual style of the last two videos. The song itself shares a lot of the same musical DNA as “Run Boy Run” and “Iron”—an echoing war drum beat; resonant bells; plaintive, orchestral horns and strings. But the new track seems a bit more upbeat, less despairing than Woodkid’s previous offerings. It’s a subtly different emotional key for a fascinating emerging artist. Lemoine’s debut album, The Golden Age, is due in March.
