Saintseneca “Visions” directed by Zenga Bros

saintseneca-visions

I don’t think I’ve seen a video that better captures the adventure of being a kid. Zenga Bros directed this beauty for Saintseneca and it’s powerful because it’s made from years of their own personal footage. You don’t need the latest cameras you just need to make work about things you know. One of my favourites of the year.

Atoms For Peace “Before Your Very Eyes” Official Music Video by Andrew Thomas Huang

I think it’s safe to say anything Andrew Thomas Huang makes will end up on Booooooom (previously here and here). Another signature mix of animation and live action take the song to a whole other level. Watch below!

SOUR “Life Is Music”

I don’t know if you remember SOUR, but several years ago they made a music video that is probably in my top 10 of all time (see it here). After seeing this one I do have to put them in the “OK Go” category though, their video concepts really outshine their music.

This video isn’t on the level of their previous one, but using spinning cds to make animations is pretty awesome. Watch the video below!

Flume & Chet Faker “Drop the Game”

FlumeChetFakerDroptheGame

I love it when Flume and Chet Faker make music together! The standout track from their Lockjaw EP gets a nice visual courtesy of director Lorin Askill. The weird slow dancing and the overall mood totally reminds me of Kahlil Joseph’s short for Flying Lotus (watch that video here).

Pharrell Williams “24 Hours of Happy”

pharrell-24hoursofhappy

Okay we still have a month to go but this is my pick for video of the year! Pharrell Williams and creative director Yoann Lemoine have made the perfect video for the happiest song of 2013. Oh yeah did I mention it’s 24 hours long?

The interactive video for “Happy” allows you to watch Pharrell and other people dancing to the song at any hour of the day!

Watch for the dude at 12:20 AM, he’s totally from The Black Keys “Lonely Boy” video (watch it on Youtube here)!

Also 1:33 AM – I spotted my homies, director duo DANIELS! Their part is the best (watch it on Youtube here).

Manel “Quin dia feia, amics…”

MANEL Quin dia feia, amics...

Great music video for Barcelona-based band, Manel, directed by Victor Carrey (previously posted here and here). I believe the title of the song translates to “What a day it was, friends”. I love the ending.
