The Orielles 'Come Down On Jupiter' by Rose Hendry
The Orielles get stuck on a loop in Come Down On Jupiter, directed by Rose Hendry.
A cup of tea crashing to the floor in a café triggers a series of repetitive events, reminiscent of the film Groundhog Day. Shot in a beautifully slow and considered style, DP Ian Forbes captures the melancholy of everyday life, the moments where nothing seems to be happening, with slow movements and carefully composed close-ups.
The cyclical nature of the concept is mirrored by lots of spinning- fingers twirling around the rim of a cup, clock hands ticking, moving a salt shaker in a never-ending loop. It's a poignant and exciting setup which commands attention, and does so in a blissfully psychedlic way.
"When I first heard the track I was immediately transported into some sort of mystery melodrama from another era, with a strong dose of something psychedelic. This was my starting point, alongside an image by photographer, Ralph Gibson, of a cup of tea sitting on a beige table, bathed in warm sunlight with a plastic spoon resting against the lip. I enjoyed the idea of centring the video around an incident with a cup of tea - that felt dramatic to me - something “mundane” becoming something dramatic. I wanted to encapsulate the playful psychedelia in a psychological and structural way as opposed to the ‘pastiched to death’ VW campervan kind of way. Add toast to that and the rest developed from there."
