Here’s another example of a $10 music video, but I think they did a better job than The Darkest Hour. Football players wielding swords for the win. It’s a good example of how to make a cool ass video for a tight ass budget. I mean what could they have spent money on? Sound stage, smoke machine, sports outfits (some of which are probably owned by the actors), weapons. I can just hear the director say, “Ok, now you have weapons. Run back and forth, but don’t hit the band.” I wish I was there.
If you haven’t heard it yet, the new Cut Copy record Zonoscope is stupidly great. It is the next step away from their synthpop origins, continuing the move from Bright Like Neon Love to In Ghost Colours. They’ve really gone full-blown new wave on this one and it is incredibly successful. I cannot wait to see them live in April.
