Following the close of his first full US tour and in support of his debut full length 6 Feet Beneath The Moon, King Krule is back today to share the video for “A Lizard State,” the track he performed this past fall on Conan. The Jamie-James Medina-directed clip finds Archy Marshall defying gravity, performing the song for a concealed suitor from a bedroom wall. The video, which is introduced by Hitchcock, was also inspired by his film Dial M For Murder. Speaking on the inspiration and use of Hitchcock in the video, Jamie-James Medina said:

“Archy and I both love Hitchcock and we’ve spent a lot of time away from music talking about his films. When I heard the phone ringing over the intro all I could think about was Dial M For Murder and the scene where Grace Kelly answers the phone. That really started the conversation. I had this idea of Hitchcock introducing King Krule. I’ve seen every episode of Hitchcock Presents and every introduction that he gives is brilliant – you could use any episode and it would work. We loved the idea of Archy defying gravity and that being the setting for his performance. But right up until shooting we didn’t know if we’d get permission to use the Hitchcock footage – to have him appear. Its such an honor that the Hitchcock estate gave us the opportunity. And then at the very end he said, ‘and the room is full of lizards’, so we had to find a set of lizards and managed to get a guy who entertains at children’s parties.”

6 Feet Beneath The Moon is available now through iTunes.
