Everyone’s jumping aboard the Star Wars train (Even Japan - literally). Korean pop band Exo has a new song out called Lightsaber that’s pretty catchy.
I’m not saying that Pixelord’s “Rescue Cyber Party” is something you should watch while on drugs. I am saying that it looks like the personification of drugs.
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.
Thundercat’s delightful video for Them Changes has been playing here all day in the background. The direction from Carlos Lopez Estrada is fantastic, and the music isn’t bad either.
Retro Indie band Gunship has just released a new music video for their song Tech Noir, and it’s chock full of references from all the great films of the 1980s. Cue up the nostalgia!
The music video for The Chemical Brothers’ “Sometimes I Feel So Deserted” takes us to a literal desert, one that looks straight out of an Australian post-apolyptic movie. And when a woman finds herself on the run from some rather nefarious figures, it quickly becomes clear that it’s not just the cars that run on…
As is traditional, ignore the actual words of the song — which only have the barest glancing of relevance to the video — and focus on the visuals. Because there’s a woman with pretty awesome powers and a man in a breathing mask fighting against some sort robotic force.
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.
Here’s a fantastic music video about an astronaut exploring an icy planet, set to Calvin Cardioid’s song Everything To Me. It’s a nice, catchy tune, and the simple animation has a cool, retro feel to it. We dig it.
Portland band Adventure Galley recently released a music video for their song Marooned. It’s dripping with retro-1950s goodness, from rockets to robots to a little mad science.
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.
The music video for Dream Koala’s “Earth” from the Earth.Home.Destroyed EP, directed by the duo FABULOUS, is awe-inspiring in so many ways. From the wreckage of civilization to the beauty of nature on earth, every shot is amazing. And so is the lonely astronaut traveling through space, only to crash to Earth.
Professor Soap — a.k.a. artist Ryan Mauskopf — has done it again. He describes his latest short film, the musical science lesson Positronic, as “a sock-puppet-rock-saga about positrons and electrons.” The vibe is charmingly retro and the instrumental is quite the snappy toe-tapper.
How did civilization exist before we had this? A group of 49 animation students were each given 52 frames of Taylor Swift’s “Shake It Off” music video, to rotoscope anyway they wanted. The results are surreal and astonishing. Can’t stop, won’t stop, watching this madness.
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.
John Carpenter is famed for directing genre classics like Halloween, They Live, and Escape From New York, but the synth-y scores he's crafted have earned their own cult following. He recently released Lost Themes — instrumentals for imaginary features — and we've got the music video premiere for "Night"!
No matter how you feel about the Backstreet Boys, it's difficult to resist this theatrical take on one of the group's biggest hits, re-imagined as "a glamanimated space opera" by Kingship. Stephen Mertens directs the animated video, below. Guitar-shaped asteroids and high-heeled space boots ahoy!
In the music video for Hundred Waters' "Innocent," we watch through CC TV cameras as a robotic janitor travels through an empty spaceship, sucking up the bugs who have invaded the corridors. But gradually, we come to understand just what is going on in this strange animation.
