Here are the latest videos we found and liked this week.
We start with MOZ a Guatemalan band, who released a video for Oasis, directed by Tony Ung – an L.A. based film maker and the video is about two girl friends having an adventure in the American wastelands, just wanting to escape…
Next, another female duo, the Munich based trip-hop Luko with a video for Good or Bad - an atmospheric clip starring the two protagonists Leslie-Vanessa Lill & Lena Meckel and being produced by Stef Zins.
Yumi Zouma released The Brae / A Long walk home for parted lovers – a cool hang out and having fun video about 2 girls and 1 boy in a mixed-feelings situation. You know how that goes…Video directed by Eugene Kotlyarenko.
Hundred Waters with a video for Cavity – dark & moody feel, exploring lights & silhouettes in the night – a sort of trippy video – but very well directed for this track by Michael Langan of Langan Films (http://langanfilms.com/)
Next we have Run the Jewels with a self titled mixed media, trap fueled video Run The Jewels directed and animated by one of my favorite motion graphers RUFFMERCY (http://ruffmercy.com/) – This. is. pure. visual. madness!
Our sweetheart Maya Jane Coles released a new video for Comfort – a bio/human/earthly/grainy/eco/video – a bit NSFW as it involves mild nudity, but a very well done video directed by Jonas Lord.
And another wild/nature video for Chiara by Vendredi – directed by duo Matthias JENNY & Koya KAMURA – wild forest, ancient times, an ancient chase of a savage woman for a man, switching roles, becoming a canibal herself… this is the NSFW violent version:
A video tribute to Takashi Ishii – a visual delicacy, cut, chopped, mixed from various asian movie clips and edited by Silver Strain for Carpenter Brut – Obituary track. The video contains NSFW parts… BUT IT’S FUCKING AWESOME!
BANKS, another favorite musician released a new video for Brain – featuring herself over-exposed between darkish motion graphics, produced by David Robertson and directed by Barnaby Roper. A beauty of a video for a great music track.
And after the hugely successful “kissing strangers” FIRST KISS video
we finish this week’s selection with a music video of the same kind – Shura Touch directed by Ammr Khalifa – a chill back track, a beautiful studio-shot video featuring random beautiful people starting to kiss and touch – a video exploration of attraction:
So, enjoy the music and the videos and have a great weekend!
