Black Rain video contest winner
Thank you so much for all the amazing entries for the Genero video competition. There were so many great ideas and brilliantly executed pieces of art.
We loved Andy Marsh's video for Black Rain. There's a heartbreaking sense of a young boy's dreams gone awry, a yearning for innocent times and high hopes, of love and kindness remembered in the face of violence and fear. Of course, I can't say whether that's what was intended at all! But either way the atmosphere of this story fits beautifully with the sense of the song, and even the sense of Strangeland as a record. The ghostly and surreal mood of the video also works perfectly with the feel of the music itself - sound and visuals complement each other and give each other more power, which is the ultimate achievement for a music video.
woooowww O_O it's great!!!
OHMYGODNESS!!! i love it! its one of my favorites and now one of my favorites videos (': and yes Tim it represent the feelings of the song, oh well , thats my opinion. Sinceretly, love it! Congratulations! hugs and love from Mexico. Lorena Cantu
LOVE IT!!! BEAUTIFUL!! Matches the song so well!!
Thank you Mr. Marsh. OMG I love it - it fits to the song and I kinda been touched by the video, but also for the text I read that Tim wrote. It is an amazing video and really good work with the whole video. The song is really good, it's a beautiful and lovely song so the mixture is brilliant, it's amazing. It all just touched me, I use to get easily touched when I sometimes watch a movie or TV series but just the video with this song was incredible brilliant. I love it! Congratulation later than expected because of me, I'm sorry. Still I'm saying congrats! I love it, Marsh. It's incredible.
My first chance to see the video - brilliant! Loved the song from the start, and the video has done it justice! Thank you, Mr. Marsh!

Beautiful!! What a talented person Andy Marsh is!! Bravissimo!!!!
What a great video. It really reflects the mood and the idea of the song! Well done to everybody who was involved in the making of this brilliant video!
Deserved winner. Loved the hauntingly beautiful atmosphere of the video. And the smog adds even more mystery.
This is a beutiful and touching video.. and the song fits perfectly! Congratulations to Andy Marsh and all the people who worked on it. I really wish Keane could come to South America!!
Hauntingly beautiful …fate allows us to tread certain pathways… I relied on assumptions…expectations…unspoken boundaries … I expected so much more , more than what was within you to give……
Ce clip est très réussi. J'adore. Cela correspond bien à musique de cette chanson. Andy Marsh, vous être un artiste, alors je vous dis : "bravo l'artiste !"
Fellow Keane fans, check out this track I made, do you guys think keane should remake it?!?!?!?! http://soundcloud.com/adam-murphy-1/adam-murphy-twisted-inside-out
Definitely, this video deserves to be the winner of the contest. And... to be honest... this video is much better than the other Strangeland videos... I'm so sorry for telling this, but... well... Thank you, Mr. Andy Marsh, your video is AWESOME!!!!!!! PD: Keane, will you come to Colombia????
AMAZING VIDEO, LOVED IT!!!! :D KISSES AND HUGS FROM ARGENTINA! WE'RE WAITING FOR YOU GUYS!!!!!!!!! LOVE YOU!

Beautifully Chilling! I also love Tims words to describe the video. XX
I love this video. It fits perfectly with the song. Black Rain is so hauntingly beautiful. Annette H. x
Wouaw. It's really a remarkable work ! I really love it. The reflecions are superb. And the atmosphere "fait froid dans le dos"... (It gives me the creeps). Frankly bravo !
Visually beautiful and very moving. I believe it is even better than the Disconnected, SBTN and SLC's videos.
Congratulations Andy Marsh! Your video is very moving.
Wow, that was really good. Tearjerker!! Good choice, it represents the song beautifully.
Tim, I loved this video! it's so beautiful! now is my favourite :D Greetings from Chile! I love youuu :)
Congrats Andy Marsh! I love the atmosphere of the video, it definitely fits the song. The end is heartbreaking *sigh* very intense.
Wonderful! I love it! Congratulations!
Hi keaneeeeeeee♥♥♥ it´s great!!! ;) congratulations!!!! and thank you!! good day for you!!!! :D I LOVE YOU!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! MELY ZURI from Argentina!BS.AS.
Beautiful Keane - my other half said that this must be their best album yet - I cant agree with that as I can't make I mind which album is my favourite!! But Strangeland just keeps growing on me! lovely videos your fans are very arty and talented!!
Staying in Hamburg at the moment - can´t watch the video, thanks to GEMA, now I know why German fans are always so pissed off.
Hello KEANE!!! Congratulations!!! great video!!! i loved it!!! the boy of the video looks like Tom when was a child!! :) bye...kisses from paraguay!!! :)
Lovely Video, very well done... but it reminds me TOO much to the Film "The Empire of the Sun" with Christian Bale and John Malkovich.
Congratulations!!! I was delighted with the video! Perfect harmony with the song! I loved it!!!
Beautiful video and great choice!!! :'(
The song made me cry again with this beautiful video, really touching....... exactly like the first time I heard it...... congrats!!!!!!!!!!!

So touching, so wonderful.... So sad and so beautiful.... Thank you, KEANE and Andy Marsh!
No entiendo de vídeos. No soy productor ni director. Veo que el niño hace un buen papel y que tiene un aire físico a Tom. El contexto de la niebla, fog, es diria la atmósfera de todo Strangeland. Parece que es un CD con canciones simples pero no lo son. Me parece Tim que empiezo a conocerte y eres una persona exigente con tu trabajo y quieres seriedad. Para ti la música es toda una expresion emocional. Es importante saber que el ganador ha sido una elección de toda la banda Keane. Eres para mi un gran compositor. Pero tienes también un gran equipo como el Football club Barcelona con el entrenador Pep Guardiola. Sin ellos Keane no seria Keane. Es un elegante y precioso vídeo para vuestra banda. Petons. Barcelona. Marisa.
What a beautiful video! It compliments the feel of the song, the lyrics and the melody perfectly. Congratulations to the winner.

I loved it guys! Good choise. Well done Andy. I cried my heart out...
It is almost exactly as I imagined it but for me it would've been much better including more war scenes, to make the song message more clear. Simply beautiful!
Very beautiful indeed, it's great to see a video for my favourite Strangeland's song. Congrats, Andy!! All the best from The Frog Prince Squad :-)
The video really fits perfectly with the song, it´s just lovely!!!! We´ll see you in august, greetings from Mexico!!
Wow, this is incredible! Very moving and beautifully shot.
This is wonderful & very well done! It perfectly captures the atmospheric & haunting qualities of the track. I was completely drawn in by the imagery & the realization towards the end felt incredibly moving. A worthy winner!
