Mythical Embodiment
"When the sun goes down" Is a perfect representation of the modern bard, the music completely correlates to the video and vice versa, both allow us to understand more of the story behind the characters as well as their part in the video.
The video continues to progress at a faster and faster pace, as the girl is doing a drug deal, selling herself, being abused by her boyfriend the shots are all quite quick, this is to emphasise the horror of the girls position. At the beginning of the video a quotation is displayed "Right beside us are the ones hidden in the night" This aids the idea of the modern bard.
In the parts that Turner is singing sadly the girl mirrors his emotion, but as the tempo fastens it allows us to see the girl as an outsider as she walks by herself. As the song ends we fade out from a shot of the girl and this aids the viewer to understand her despair.
