This video begins with an endless expanse of bright green trees, paired—in shocking contrast—against the most dismal, ominous, grey sky. And that’s about as far as the concept for this video goes. 2:54 plays in a circle in the woods, it’s foggy, and then it gets dark. But that’s all there really needs to be. “Scarlet” is expertly atmospheric to the point that this whole thing could just be a black screen and we’d still imagine exactly what they’re showing us anyway.
