Glass Animals - Agnes
‘Agnes’ was the saddest song Dave Bayley had ever written. To simulate the weight of heartbreak of the song’s main character, Agnes, Bayley performs the song in a Human Centrifuge Machine, used by astronauts for G-force training crushing its subjects under extreme gravity. To get the shot they ran it 18 times - an excruciating process that Bayley described as “being slowly sat on by an elephant..”
To pull this video off, the band overcame great technical, physical and emotional distress giving a powerful tribute to the real heartbreak in Agnes.
