Great New Music Videos

Lots of great new music videos have been sent into CR Towers of late: here’s a selection of our favourites from the past month.

Lots of great new music videos have been sent into CR Towers of late: here’s a selection of our favourites from the past month.

First up is this cheerful new video from Airside, for Frank Eddie track Let Me Be The One You Call On. Design, direction, animation by Mr Kaplin and Airside Nippon.

Next is this simple but powerful promo for Keaton Henson from director David Wilson. Starring actor Sophie Thompson, the enigmatic video is for Henson’s track You Don’t Know How Lucky You Are. It is the second for Henson by Wilson, following his poignant promo for Charon. Production company: Blink Productions.

An actor fronts this next video too, which is for Horrible Crowes track Behold the Hurricane. It stars Joseph Mawle, who gives an intense performance as he is literally confronted by his personal demons. Director: Corin Hardy. Production company: A+.

This video, for new single Wetsuit by The Vaccines, is the result of a crowdsourcing exercise by ad agency Anomaly and Sony Music, which invited fans of the band to tag photos of themselves at summer festivals (using Instagram) and submit them to a website. Nearly 3,000 images were submitted from over 30 countries, and these were weaved together by director Poppy de Villeneuve into the promo above. Production company: Partizan.

Two new videos from director So Me now, both of which have already proved hugely popular online. First up is Crush On You by Nero, which illustrates the potential perils of four-timing teenage girls.

The second is his promo for Audio Video Disco by Justice. Production for both is by Somesuch & Co.

Described as an ‘audio-visual collaboration’ rather than a music video, The Canadian Affair is directed by Thibaut Duverneix and features an altered version of track 032 by the Danish band The Good The Bad. Production: Antler Films.

Henning M Lederer has created this striking black-and-white animation for the track Mass by Vaetxh, released on the King Deluxe label.

We finish with a cool interactive video for Swedish artist Lune, that can be found online at (password: letgo). Created by directors Zubicky & Tempelman in collaboration with production company Stinkdigital, the interaction on the site is simple but effective: essentially the more you interact with it, the more of the film you’ll see.
