Patrick is back to his best! I love everything about this, the crumbling house, his whimsical cheekiness, the suits, the jungle aesthetic, the animals, the lyrics, the music AND the subtle Thomas Hardy reference(I'm not sure if it really is or not, but he seems like a well read type of guy who would appreciate the beautiful dichotomy of pastoral vs industrial England that Hardy explored in his books).
Anyway, enough chatter, feast your eyes and ears!
I cannot WAIT for this album to drop. I decided to research Lupercalia out of curiosity (thankyou Wiki), and this is what I found.
"Lupercalia was a very ancient, possibly pre-Roman pastoral festival, observed on February 13 through 15 to avert evil spirits and purify the city, releasing health and fertility."
See. He totally got what Hardy was talking about.
