Award: Graphite Pencil

Graphite Pencil / Music Videos / Music Videos / 2012

A horrific car accident has Manchester Orchestra frontman Andy Hull going through the calculus of his life in this fractured and ambitious video. It's a story about a 23-year-old who questions everything from marriage to love to religion to sex. According to lead singer Hull, ‘Sometimes, even for me, it’s difficult to decipher which one I’m actually talking to.’ Despite the video's fairly low budget, it has received huge amounts of critical acclaim.
