So for this post I wanted to look about for some decent music on youtube, keep things colourful.
They Came From Japan – Halo
Love this video. do it. I have no idea how intentional the outrageous lo-fi is but its absolute gold dust. Theres none of the sickly sheen of possible comparisons Tubelord but all the hooks. Its all got all the ridiculousness of every teenage band who just played loud into the recording tape deck but these guys are louder (and “a lot better”) and the tape deck is now a single top of the range video camera. and the song is about Halo. Beyond ridiculous.
Au Revoir Simone – Another Likely Story
I first saw this band at a festival 4 years ago. It was raining, and they weren’t moving much, my 16 year old self was not impressed.I like to think the reason this single appeals to me so much more is not just down to the fact that the video has a noticeable amount of sunshine and an abundance of movement. Maybe its the intertwining synths that crumble and buckle beneath the steady, levitating vocals and beat. Or maybe its just that they could flatten Owl City hands with their synths behind their backs. I do love that sunshine though.
