Spoon rocks in black and white: Watch their 'Written in Reverse' video here

Spoon’s music has often been about doing a lot with a little. See, for example, the indie rockers’ video for “Written in Reverse,” the first single from their excellent new album Transference. In the black-and-white clip, the members of Spoon play their ripping tune in front of some mirrors. A press release notes that director Danny Clinch captured a live in-studio performance of “Written in Reverse,” separate from the version you’ll find on Transference.

So, Spoon rocking out in black and white. That’s about it — and that’s all it needs to be, I’d say. This song is too immediate in its appeal to require a high-concept treatment. Watch the video below and see if you agree.

    love spoon, but the video is a bit boring. i the title of the song lends itself to a potentially interesting concept. oh well.
