Here are the latest videos we found and liked this week.
We have a shortie but goodie selection, with some very nice videos from the likes of Flying Lotus, Lana del Rey or Tycho, stay tuned.
We begin with a new music video from one of the best US’ West Coast electronic producers – none other than Flying Lotus, this is the video for his track Phantasm from the critically acclaimed album “Until the Quiet Comes”, filmed over 2 days in a desert in New Zealand by one-man-studio The Bow, in a surreal, vintage mood featuring strange creatures, light beings, glitches, using stop motion special effects to really complement the calm/psychedelic tune of the music.
Next, a meticulously hand-drawn animation video for Metronomy’s Reservoir, directed by Daniel Brereton:
Sia’s new music video is for Chandalier featuring amazing 11-years-old dancer Maddie Ziegler of Dance Moms, interpreting Ryan Heffington’s mesmerizing choreography, video directed by Sia herself and director Daniel Askill – trying to communicate the song’s theme of childlike abandon. Amazing video this one…
And next, another girl singing, this time we have Lana Del Rey’s West Coast official video, featuring herself spending quality time as a happy girlfriend with her lover on the west coast, hanging out and having fun in a dark noir music video directed by Chris Sweeney and Sophie Muller.
The last of the music video, for Tycho’s heavenly cut track See from his latest LP Awake for label Ghostly – a beautiful music video for a beautiful song – a forest setup with a girl having an adventure, following a number of symbols and almost magical shadowy figures throughout her journey of discovery. The video is directed by the amazing G Munk (Bradley G Munkowitz) – check out his works here: http://www.gmunk.com/
