U2 just released the music video/short film for my favorite single, “Every Breaking Wave,” from their most recent album Songs Of Innocence and its fantastic! Leave it to U2 to add a political/social visual storyline to already amazing track.
The film is described on U2’s website as:
“Set on the streets of early 1980s Northern Ireland, the film is built around themes of emotional abandon and the uncertainty of romantic relationships. It follows two teenagers, one Catholic and the other Protestant, who fall in love amidst ongoing violence and the film’s emotional core is centred around ‘Every Breaking Wave’ and ‘The Troubles,’ two tracks from Songs of Innocence.”
