As a young adult, life can feel like it’s just rushing by. In Peter J. Brant’s video for “Come to the City,” that mood is naturally put onscreen through a swirl of moving colors and accelerated imagery. Among the first scenes witnessed in the War On Drugs video is a suburban area that looks like it was slowed down a little so you can see the individual frames of the film. As spattered and distorted colors run up and down on the screen, the young protagonists spend some time out in nature, taking a moment to stand still and experience the world that never stops moving.
