Watch: Thief Unveils ‘Closer’ Video

Aussie PJ Wolf matches melodrama with plastic fried eggs and pretty colours in this animated clip.

Aussie newcomer PJ Wolf quietly released his ‘Closer’ EP towards the end of last year. It’s a bringing together of the Sydney resident’s colourful take on pop, something that matches up to a T with the new video for the EP’s title-track.

Any sense of downtroddeness that might be picked out of the song itself is chucked to one side in this fantastic, stop-motion video directed by Robert Wallace. ‘I’m too tired of watching you fuck me over,’ sings Thief. But who bloody cares when there’s a tin of biscuits swirling around in a circular motion, surrounded by plastic fried eggs and old-school telephone sets?

Watch Thief’s ‘Closer’ video below. The debut EP is getting a UK release later this year, with the single out on 25th March. It’s very good.
