Love this video – flawless styling and art direction, and great storytelling from a pair of directors I’d never heard of before, Barrere & Simon. Watch “All That You Are” below.
This is one of my favourite videos of the year so far. Ace Norton’s marvelous black and white video for Phantoms is a masterpiece. Hats off to choreographers Tracy Phillips and Dominic Carbone, and the director of photography, Alexander Alexandrov. Watch “Voyeur” below.
Death From Above 1979’s first album was a classic but for whatever reason I completely slept on their follow up to it in September. “Virgins” is their third single off of The Physical World and it makes me wanna go back and give it a listen.
Sebastien Grainger’s voice sounds as good as it did ten years ago and this video directed by his wife, Eva Michon, is an instant-classic. Check out the other videos on her site and her magazine, Bad Day. Watch some Amish kids get wild, eat flowers, and sniff ashes in the video below.
Designer Joshua Davis has been creating some really cool visuals lately, experimenting with texture mapping (2D image wrapped onto a 3D object). Here he uses Tycho’s “See” video as the source and the results are way more interesting than the original Tycho video. Watch the experiment below.
Florence Welsh wrestles with herself, quite literally, in her latest video for “Ship To Wreck”, once again directed by Vincent Haycock. I love it when an artist and a director work together for multiple videos on one album; Welsh and Haycock have really found a great chemistry (see “What Kind of Man” and “St Jude”). Hopefully there’s a video for every song on the album!
Watch Florence and the Machine’s “Ship to Wreck” below.
