I'll start this off with somthing obvious. The Arctic Monkeys are everyone's favorite indie band or whatever.
This has to be my favorite song by them, but I have to admit, I'm more impressed with the music video than the song itself. The song is simple and the video seems to start off simple as well. But as the song picks up energy and depth the animations become increasingly complex. The Knife makes some of the most horrifying music videos. I remember watching this a year ago and being thoroughly terrified.
Yeah there's some BDSM undertones to make things a bit more uncomfortable for vanilla minded people. But damn, it's just a scary music video over all!
If that seemed a little trippy than it's only getting trippier. Next I want to show you this Lorn music video is the one for the ever sparkly and happy song Ghosst(s)
I really like that style, the way things morph makes for an especially interesting flow of the graphical animation with the rhythm, melody and tone of the music. This animation originally made for a Blockhead music video is similar.
Very nice... but could it be improved on? Apparently, I think that who ever thought to put it to Zeds Dead's remix of The Moody Blues Nights in White Satin really hit the tone and expression of the video right on.
Another great video of transformation evolution and visual psychodelia. The animation is perfectly influenced and reflective of the music in this song called Love and Theft by Heiko Maile.
Yeah, at the moment I've got nothing to top that.
