ROCK OF AGES///DAMIEN HIRST ART DIRECTS NEW MUSIC VIDEO FOR THE HOURS
In THE HOURS’ new video for “See the Light,” Hollywood danger girl SIENNA MILLER dons a hospital gown, gets trapped in a glass case in a bag shop, smokes, talks about suicide, cries a lot, undergoes an MRI scan, and smears herself in cow’s blood in front of four eviscerated, wall-mounted bovine carcasses. If this last image brings to mind DAMIEN HIRST, that’s no accident. Hirst, a friend of the band, was art director on the video, made by “American History X” director TONY KAYE. The Hours’ singer, Antony Genn, has found a good friend in Hirst—the artist not only contributed artwork to their first record, 2001’s “Narcissus Road,” and to their forthcoming EP, also titled “See the Light,” but has founded a record label, IS GOOD, to promote their music.
