The official video for “Blood for Poppies”, Garbage’s first single off of Not Your Kind of People premiered less than an hour through UStream and is now on Vevo. The video, directed by fashion photographer Matt Irwin, was filmed in four days at the end of February in Los Angeles, California. The visuals for “Blood for Poppies” were inspired by artists Reneé Magritte, Luis Buñuel, Maya Deren, and Francesca Woodman.
“We piled into a transit van with the ridiculously talented team of Matt Irwin and Aaron Brown and hopped around little pockets of Los Angeles creating a gorgeous surrealist dream. We ate ice cream sandwiches in the sunshine and laughed a lot. I didn’t want the shoot to end,” recalled Manson.
The video has a similar vibe to “Queer” and “Push It” music videos.
