Have you ever heard of Clutchy Hopkins? He’s a mightily mysterious musician, who’s  father had been a recording engineer for Motown bands – passed down everything he knew. Clutchy’s recordings and journals were found under the care of a Cahuilla Indian Mohave shaman who Clutchy had studied under: the writings of a musical gypsy who traveled the world investigating consciousness and its relation to music. But I digress! Super hotshot Dutch creative Christian Borstlap (of delightful Klokhuis leader fame), assisted by the lovely and talented former SubmarineChannel intern, Jorrit Spoelstra, made this beautiful video for Clutchy’s new ditty, Verbal Headlock.

    2Pause | Freezing Music Video Culture

    The world of music videos has traditionally provided a perfect breeding ground to test new visual styles, VFX and editing techniques. It has also proven to be an extraordinary springboard for some of todays most acclaimed film directors, such as Spike Jonze, Baz Luhrmann and Michel Gondry, to name but three. 2Pause is the second installment of our curated music video website. The old Pause website is still online here.
