The 1975 - Frederick Paxton responds to ‘Shiny Collarbone’

‘Shiny Collarbone’ from The 1975’s new album, ‘Notes On A Conditional Form’. Out now - the1975.lnk.to/noacf

The 1975 and Ben Ditto have curated an online exhibition of 15 artists responding to tracks from ‘NOACF’.
05 Frederick Paxton responds to ‘Shiny Collarbone’

Filmmaker and artist Frederick Paxton takes us on a journey into an unknown land. We begin on a mysterious train ride over a long bridge. A solitary figure in white falls through the darkness. At first it’s unclear where we are but as we move through the layers, through anonymous suburbs, it becomes apparent we’re in North Korea, at the Arirang Mass Games: a spectacular gymnastics and artistic festival held in Rungrado May Day Stadium in Pyongyang most years.
Paxton is interested in finding moments and places that reveal our shared humanity, our hidden euphoria. This is what he hears in ‘Shiny Collarbone’, in the looping ragga vocal (“Mash up the place/ Free up the order”) and the climbing synth.
“It has a strength to it, a weight to it, but there’s a euphoria hidden under that,” he says. “And that was also my takeaway from my brief experience in North Korea: you can subject humans to any sort of control and pain and suffering; but there’s always this human reality, a child being a child, or someone smiling, hidden underneath that.”
North Korea’s Mass Games are a visual representation of the country’s ideal of the collective whole. However, after filming their choreographed performances on his slow-motion camera and watching the slowed-down footage, Paxton found that the individuals in the group were revealed, that their characters became more apparent as time was slowed down and his attention focused in on them. Now, set to the music of this club track, the children in their sequined costumes with their pompoms, the undulating dancers carrying the giant Earth through the stadium and the parading soldiers show us how the human spirit is always present; how technology can reveal it, and how there’s beauty everywhere.

    I think this may be The worst song yet they have ever released this is a fucking stupid song what the fuck were they thinking it just sounds like an AJR song Which I like AJR But these guys are trying to sound like AJR on the new album which I like This band I love both of the Two albums Which is there Self title And I like it when you sleep Online relationships were Kinda mediocre album But notes on a conditional form is a very mediocre Not the worst album they have ever released just very mediocre but this song might be by far the worst song to date The whole album doesn’t sound like this I’m glad but it’s still disappoint album As a fan not a super fan but just a fan

    This might seem like an unpopular opinion but even as a The 1975 fan I can be allowed to think that their latest album is the weakest :( which is ironic cause Matty goes on and on about how that’s their best work yet but I just can’t help but think that the sound's somewhat...inorganic? Idk...ABIIOR was definitely stronger. PLS DON'T GET MAD AT ME I know they wanted to experiment with this sound and all but I personally can’t get into it. :(

    Also about the irony of my username :^) there are obviously still a few songs that I actually really like. It’s just that the sound of them should’ve been the exception, not the entire aesthetic..

    The video is so surreal. It leaves me wanting more, while at the same time I'm repulsed at the N. Korean regime that pushes this onto it's people. I think the children are enjoying themselves, but the majority of citizens are not faring so well, starvation and torture are common... I can't even imagine what it's like there now, with the pandemic. Maybe being a closed system they avoided it, but I doubt it.

    Apart from North Koreans suffering in pain, being controlled, dying of hunger, can't even wear jeans, cut their hair the way they want to, watch a movie they like, or even believe in Jesus Christ and/or other religions, I somehow hope that there's still joyness that they experience. In a cage they are in, I hope they still smile underneath the pain they're suffering with. I hope that joy and smile lasts.
