Magnetic Fields

The second video from The Magnetic Fields 2012 album Love at the Bottom of the Sea is called 'Quick!' It's, of course, about love — in this case the tangling, strangling end to a love.

The song features vocals from Shirley Simms with harmonies from Claudia Gonson. It also features lyrics by Stephin Merritt and those lyrics are blunt counterpoint to the sweet love story you'll see in this new video. Some of the lyrics to 'Quick!' are:

"You better think of something quick because my suitcase is packed
Quick, because I'm through being attacked
Are you really prepared to lose
All this just to air your views?"

The video, about a trash can-bound lover seeking same, is directed by James Spinney.
