I have a problem. I spent the past few weeks scouring gift guides in hopes of stumbling into something that I could buy. The problematic part is that I don’t need anything. And yet, I kept looking and looking and looking. It’s because I’m dumb and stupid and want to buy stuff because that’s what the holiday season…
You know that feeling when you have too many tabs and windows open and you can’t find your desktop? That’s exactly how it feels to watch “Drifted,” the new music video by The Shoes. Actually, the music video is more stressful.
This is pretty cool: director Joe Connor sent a pair of televisions up to the edge of space by balloon to film his music video for Kelvin Jones’ song Call You Home.
The video for Two Minds, the latest single from British electronic trio NERO looks just like it’s a lost cyberpunk film from the 1980s. It’s got that early digital look to it, and the story that plays out wouldn’t be out of place on a stack of forgotten VHS tapes.
Michna’s latest song, Solid Gold, featuring MNDR has a video that’s perfect for the geologist in you: it’s a neat, stop motion music video that features 60 different types of rocks set to a great track.
This adorable little girl gets to live every kid’s dream and turn her arm into an animated rocket cannon that blasts bad guys. The music video for Grades’ song King was made by Taichi Kimura and features Laika Takasu dancing (really well!) around an empty school as animation enemies sprout all around her.
This music video from British-based music producer and remix artist Jamie XX for his song Gosh has captivated me all week. It takes a minute for the slow journey to Mars to sink in, and watching Mars turn slowly below as it’s terraformed makes for a beautiful video.
Taylor Swift’s “Bad Blood” music video finally premiered tonight. And there are so many pop culture references, you’ll wonder if you actually saw them all.
In what has to be one of the shortest shoots ever, all it took to make this three and a half minute music video was five seconds of filming. That seems like some pretty good bang for your buck! The trick was that a Phantom 4K camera inhaled those five seconds at 1000FPS to create this moving mural painting of a music…
Cruisr's music video for their song All Over contains so many pop culture references in its animation that I can't even keep up. There are famous couples side by side and there are movie scenes recreated and it's just so much fun trying to spot them all. It's like seeing all the movies I've ever seen in one video.
Monday mornings are tough. I had my shower, my coffee, I went through my morning work routine, and just when I thought I was recovering from my monday blues I bumped into this: A surreal and hypnotic animated music video that made me go into full weekend mode again.
Most love songs have music videos where couples kiss, hug, or have sex. This video for the song Luna by South Korean band HEO does the same, except they take it to the extreme thanks to some cool but really creepy special effects.
We've all been there. When things change, when love is gone, when something happens, when someone leaves, we spend too much time chasing it back again. Péter Vácz made this stop-motion animation music video for James' All I'm Saying to illustrate that chase.
Sound makes funny shapes. We don't usually see it in real life but when you put together water and sand with speakers bumping at different frequencies, you'll start seeing spirals and kaleidoscopes and other wild objects. This new video by Nigel Stanford and directed by Shahir Daud features all those awesome cymatics…
Mayokero is the first song of the album Acowpella Beatbox by Israeli artist Roy Kafri. The music video—directed by Vania Heymann, a second year student in Bezalel School of Art and Design—is brilliant. It takes classic album covers and animates them to sing along the song in a completely seamless way.
I've had this song, Paradise Awaits by ZHU, on repeat ever since I first played it. Partly because the song gives me energy but also because the video makes me feel like I'm walking through an underground dance party in New York with glow in the dark graffiti on the wall and pulsating fun in every room.
Head swaps aren't new but they are an unlimited source of fun. This video for the song On & On—by DUM—takes footage from Never Ending Story and superimposes the faces of the members of the band on the ones from the characters in the movie—they change some other things too. (NSFW-ish.)
