‘The door is open to go through
If I could I would come too
But the path is made by you
As you‘re walking, start singing and stop talking…’
Earlier this year Beck joined forces with U2 to remix “Love Is Bigger Than Anything In Its Way” from the international #1 album, Songs of Experience (Interscope). The GRAMMY Album of the Year winning musician dug deep to expose the organic foundation underpinning the soaring harmonies of the anthem spurring nightly sing-alongs on the current eXPERIENCE + iNNOCENCE Tour.
Now, Broken Fingaz Crew, the fearless Israeli graffiti collective who previously collaborated with U2 on the “American Soul” and “Get Out Of Your Own Way” videos, have created a visual re-imagination of similar impact. The infectious sonic optimism of the U2 + Beck remix is translated once again into a dizzying dreamscape, where turbulent seas and dancing skeletons ultimately give way to a message of hope.
Known only by the pseudonyms that preserve their anonymity with local authorities – Unga, Tant, Kip and Desco — the enigmatic Broken Fingaz Crew’s groundbreaking street art in their native Haifa inspired U2 to give them full creative control to visually interpret these songs. The results have continually reaffirmed Broken Fingaz Crew’s standing as artistic and social pioneers emerging from an underground of their own creation.
