Higgs Boson Blues

The video for ‘Higgs Boson Blues’ by Nick Cave & The Bad Seeds was directed by Iain Forsyth & Jane Pollard. It was shot with cinematographer Lol Crawley and re-recorded as a live performance video, at Three Mills Studios in London. The single is taken from the album ‘Push The Sky Away’.

“Nick Cave & The Bad Seeds have made a dramatic performance-based video for an all-new version of Higgs Boson Blues, the epic penultimate track of MOJO’s ninth-best album of 2013, Push The Sky Away. Beautifully shot by Iain Forsyth and Jane Pollard, the song was recut live on location at London’s Three Mills Studios featuring a leaner, meaner version of the Bad Seeds’ touring line-up: Cave, Warren Ellis, Jim Sclavunos, Barry Adamson and Martyn Casey. If anything, the song’s slow-burning, spine-tingling mix of the existential and the picaresque acquires even greater power.” – Mojo Magazine
