The general consensus of the British public seems to be that March has gotten off to a bizarre start. Eight days in and a host of political, environmental and artistic curve balls have left us all in a state of social purgatory. On one hand the weather seems to have concluded that it's stance on copious levels of rain fall has become untenable, with steady glimmers of sunshine emerging through fractures in a stubborn grey sky. Elsewhere though, stories of BBC funding cuts and a growing deficit in English football have been dwarfed by the ongoing crisis in Ukraine - a matter in which I am not nearly educated or brave enough to comment on.
So who do we look to in these uncertain times? Where the imminent capitulation of a rain cloud could drag our national mood back into the mire, or the apprehensive twitch of a trigger finger could spark war. I personally find solace in the music of my favourite artists, a set of creative's whose output is an enjoyable constant amidst a world of unpredictability. Therefore I was thrilled with the news that new videos from both Bristol quartet 'Get The Blessing' and London favourites 'Polar Bear' were on their way. These, I was sure, would set me on the path to relaxation.
I was wrong.
In fact these are two of the most curiously eccentric videos you are likely to see all year... I'm back to square one.
