To help ease you into the start of the new working week, here are eight great music videos that have come out in the last couple of weeks. So grab a cup of tea, sit back and pretend you’re engaging in some ‘research’…
First up is an animated number by Gero Doll for the track Fourth Way by Adelph, which features some stunning visuals.
We’re in more mainstream territory with this next vid, which is for the Dizzee Rascal track Something Really Bad (featuring Will.I.Am), but director Henry Schofield serves up some lovely projection-mapping effects alongside the obligatory dancing girls. Production company: Partizan.
Some simple but lovely animation in this video for China Rats track N.O.M.O.N.E.Y by director Richard Swarbrick. The film features the band made out of coins and some brilliant animated paintings too. Production company: Hotspur & Argyle.
Hoku Uchiyama and Adam Bolt are the directors of this hilarious promo for You’re On Fire by They Might Be Giants, which features yet more excellent animation.
Wire and Boardwalk Empire actor Michael K Williams stars in MGMT’s new video, for track Cool Song No. 2. The promo is directed by Isaiah Seret.
Director Diane Martel conjures up some B movie-style horror scenes in this video for Franz Ferdinand’s Evil Eye. Production company: Black Dog Films.
This slow-motion film by director Ben Strebel tells the story of a wedding gone wrong for the track Lovesong by Javeon. Production company: Somesuch & Co.
We finish this round-up with Floria Sigismondi’s promo for Lawrence Rothman track #1 All Time Low, which sees the singer trying to recover from a bad night out, and also battle his way out of a pink rubber tube. Make of it what you will. Production company: Black Dog Films.
