Some truly bonkers music videos have been released this month; here’s a selection of the most quirky we’ve spotted. First up, a new promo for The Kooks, which demonstrates the dangers of a smile…
The video is for new track Saboteur, and is directed by Surrender Monkeys.
Helena Bonham-Carter stars as a pent-up librarian in Rufus Wainwright’s latest, Out of the Game. Philip Andelman directs. Production company: Partizan.
This surprising video for Black Stone by Clark brings new meaning to the idea of ‘earth music’. Director: The Vikings. Production company: Friend.
Director Andreas Nilsson delivers a typically barmy video for Van She, involving pink Christmas trees, thongs, and a very strange vision of suburbia. The track is called Idea of Happiness. Production company: Colonel Blimp. Editing: Cut+Run.
Directors Joseph Brett and Simon Taffe (End of the Road Films) have created this beautiful if melancholic tale for Liz Green track Bad Medicine, which is created entirely in paper and card.
Sufferers of OCD might want to avoid this new video for Simian Moblile Disco track Seraphim, directed by Aoife McArdle and edited by Sam Ostrove (Cut+Run).
We end with a second, rather less stressful, vid for Simian Mobile Disco, this time for the track Cerulean. Directed and animated by Jack Featherstone and Will Samuel for ISO Studio, the promo draws inspiration from early computer graphics.
