Liam Finn has shared his latest music video, “Helena Bonham Carter”, a track taken from his recent album, The Nihilist. The clip features Finn spending an evening with Marilyn Monroe, Miley Cyrus, Jay Z, and Andy Warhol wannabes, along with a slew of other celebrity impersonators.
“For the video for ‘Helena Bonham Carter’ we wanted to tackle the speculatory obsession we have with celebrity culture,” says Finn. “We crave scandal and feast on tales of decadence. Who’s doing who? Who’s going off the rails? Do the Elite belong to the Illuminati and what are they doing behind closed doors? These almost sick fascinations have birthed some of the most ridiculous and absurd stories that most pass around without questioning their validity. Perhaps we don’t even scrape the surface and the truth is even more dark and wild than we can imagine.”
“Helena Bonham Carter” can be found on Liam Finn’s latest album The Nihilist, which is out now.
