      the ending is quite powerful because of all the repetition leading up to it

      • Malfoy

        So true! I thought it was just going to repeat itself at first.

  • Jessie Lyn

    I love the XX, they’re amazing! This is my favourite song by them, followed by Crystalised. :]

    Really dislike this band. The vocals do nothing for me. But I am in love with the video. Great idea.

      While I don’t feel the same way, I love that you give credit where it’s due. A lot of people who don’t care for a certain band rule out them and everything they do without a second thought.

    anyone hear the notorious xx mixtape?

    pretty awesome

Colourful Yet Catastrophic Photographs by Japanese Artist Yoshimitsu Umekawa

umekawa6

Equal parts mesmerizing and unsettling, Yoshimitsu Umekawa’s photographs are positively (and negatively) nuclear, drawing on the issues and anxieties that surround modern day Japan. See more images below.
