“Bitter Branches” (Video)

     

    We’ve almost reached the end of PJ Harvey’s procession of video work for Let England Shake. Here we have a clip for “Bitter Branches,” which (if we’ve calculated correctly) leaves only “All & Everyone” left without a video. Here, director Seamus Murphy continues the theme he’s established over the other clips by simply focusing his camera on myriad scenes of contemporary England and editing them together so they suit the song. There’s also some performance footage of Harvey, who thrums hard on an acoustic guitar and delivers the lyrics with conviction. Check her official website for “All & Everyone,” which is set to complete the picture next week.
