Dia Frampton Debuts New ‘The Broken Ones’ Video
Dia Frampton is gearing up for her first album release post 'The Voice' on December 6, starting with the video treatment for her single, 'The Broken Ones.'
The clip kicks off with Dia at the keys, but quickly jumps into a new scene out in a field and then another, where she's seated in a forest, surrounded by a group of kids as she's playing the piano. Our first thought is that, with her hippie-like attire and the sense of folky-ness emitted by the video in general, the imagery is reminiscent of a real-life 'Peter Pan' short film. And apparently, that's just how the director intended it.
David McClister explains of his masterpiece, “When I heard the song, Dia’s performance was so amazing that immediately I just got this vision for 'Where the Wild Things Are' meets 'Lord of the Flies' meets 'Peter’s Pan’s the lost boys.'" We concur.
As the video continues, we're shown captivating images like Dia playing guitar by candlelight, and even a war scene between her 'broken ones' and a clan of angry, black-face-painted men. If the kids clinging to Dia look a little too much like her, they should -- several of them are her sisters, including her Meg and Dia bandmate, Meg Frampton.
There's a bit of fighting and intensity near the end of the video, but as expected, the underdogs -- the broken ones -- come out on top, defeating the monsters that, for whatever reason, went against them. While we're still a bit fuzzy on the concept and idea for this work of art, we dig it.
