Awesome Music Videos

A-Train: Faster

A-Train: Faster

(Flashing Lights) When you’re faster than the speed of light, you occasionally run into people and turn them into a pile of goo. The Boys’ literal and figurative speed freak A-Train just dropped his own official music video, courtesy of Vought International, with Aimée Proal lending her powerhouse pop vocals.

Salvatore Ganacci: Fight Dirty

Salvatore Ganacci: Fight Dirty

The music video for DJ/producer Salvatore Ganacci’s track Fight Dirty features an awesome anime style and storyline about a girl who befriends a gigantic hand monster and uses it to help defeat her tormentors. Fantastic work by directors Will Goodfellow, Tom Noakes and Greg Sharp, Studio Goono, and Truba Animation.

Joep Beving x Max Cooper: Hanging D

Joep Beving x Max Cooper: Hanging D

Ksawery Komputery made this captivating music video for Max Cooper’s remix of the Joep Beving track Hanging D. The colorful shapes that move across your screen were inspired by an imaginary future where visitors travel back through time via “data excavation.” The parallax scrolling effect really creates the illusion of depth.

McCartney + Beck: Find My Way

McCartney + Beck: Find My Way

Paul McCartney gets gracefully de-aged in the imaginative music video for the song Find My Way, a track which truly sounds like equal parts McCartney and Beck. We’re not sure Macca ever had those dance moves even when he was younger. Directed by Andrew Donoho, co-produced by digital avatar maker Hyperreal Digital.

Gerald V. Casale: I’m Gonna Pay You Back

Gerald V. Casale: I’m Gonna Pay You Back

DEVO’s Gerald V. Casale presents an impassioned solo track about “gaslighting and betrayal at the hands of a toxic narcissist.” Accompanying the song is a phenomenal music video by director Davy Force with a cool animation style inspired by the work of illustrator TOMO77.

The Weeknd: Save Your Tears

The Weeknd: Save Your Tears

During the 2021 Billboard Music Awards, The Weeknd performed in a live music video that must have taken weeks to plan. The sequence features the singer amid a fleet of vintage cars, as stunt drivers performed precisely choreographed maneuvers – both with the singer inside and outside the vehicles.

Eclectic Method: Kung Fu

Eclectic Method: Kung Fu

Remix master Eclectic Method chopped up pieces of classic martial arts action to create this entertaining music video. Watch closely, and you’ll see that every punch, kick, swoosh, and shout is part of the rhythm. For some reason we’re reminded of Parappa the Rapper.

Deftones: Ceremony

Deftones: Ceremony

Deftones enlisted The Invisible Man director Leigh Whannell to bring to life this unnerving music video. Actress Cleopatra Coleman stars as a woman who must pass a series of tests in order to gain access to an extremely exclusive club. We’re just not sure why anyone would want to go in there.

The Pitch Song

The Pitch Song

Anyone working in a creative line of business can relate to the emotions you feel when your pitch for a concept falls flat on its face. Giant Ant’s animation and accompanying tune should serve as the official theme song for failed pitches.

Aesop Rock: Long Legged Larry

Aesop Rock: Long Legged Larry

“Jumps over everything, even King Kong.” Aesop Rock’s wonderfully lighthearted hip-hop track Long Legged Larry celebrates the life and legend of a heroic bullfrog. Rob Shaw’s music video and Jeremy Fish’s character design bring Larry to life with a beard and a sweatband. Long Legged Larry for Mayor!

Sébastien Guérive: OMEGA II

Sébastien Guérive: OMEGA II

Artist Thomas Blanchard has wowed us with his captivating and unsusual visuals. In the music video for Sébastien Guérive’s ambient track Omega II, Blanchard swaps his typically vibrant colors for the light, shadow, and detail of monochrome imagery, while telling an abstract story about the circle of life.

Monolink: The Prey

Monolink: The Prey

(Flashing images) Filmmaker Páraic McGloughlin created this mindblowing music video for Monolink’s track The Prey, incorporating the incredible sculpture of artist Tomàs Barceló. Páraic created the dizzying visuals by cutting between similar objects, locations, and perspectives in rapid succession.

Instrumentally Accurate Gorillaz

Instrumentally Accurate Gorillaz

If you’ve ever seen the music video for the Gorillaz track Clint Eastwood, you might have noticed that the animated band’s movements don’t sync up with every note of the music. Chickenscopes decided to create an updated version of the opening scene where the music really matches the movements. Original video here.

AC/DC: Realize

AC/DC: Realize

I’ve got the power to hypnotize… Make a play, mesmerize. AC/DC reminds us that old guys can rock too with this single from their 17th studio album Power Up. Vocalist Brian Johnson can still scream with the best of them, and guitarist Angus Young’s schoolboy moves as solid as ever. Turn the volume up to 11 and bang your head!

Andy Shauf: The Magician

Andy Shauf: The Magician

Animator Greg Cooper created this spellbinding fan music video for the track The Magician by Andy Shauf. The clip has been a labor of love for Greg over the course of four years between his other work. Be sure to check out the original music video by Winston Hacking, as it’s also quite good.

MachineCode: Every Ones & Nothings

MachineCode: Every Ones & Nothings

Animator Oskar Alvarado offers up a dramatic black-and-white vision in his music video for the MachineCode track Every Ones & Nothings. The sci-fi imagery was loosely inspired by the Incan creation myth of the Mesoamerican serpent deity, Kukulkan. (Thanks Jeffery!)

Re:Buddha: SESONGE

Re:Buddha: SESONGE

Zone out with this soothing music video from filmmaker Kevin McGloughlin, who once again fills our rods and cones with brilliant imagery. He shot the full-spectrum infrared footage with a drone over Sligo, on the west coast of Ireland. The chill track was performed by Re: Buddha, Japanese Zen monks who create electronic music.

Taylor Bennett: Don’t Wait Up

Taylor Bennett: Don’t Wait Up

Lamar + Nik created this clever music video for Taylor Bennett f/Mr. Hudson’s soulful hip hop track Don’t Wait Up. Rather than shooting on location, they placed the musician into scenes using the screen from an iPhone. They made the sets from cardboard, hot glue, and assorted miniatures. Behind the scenes here.

Istanbul Sessions: Hurri-Mitanni

Istanbul Sessions: Hurri-Mitanni

Backed by the jazzy sounds of Ilhan Ersahin’s Istanbul Sessions‘ track Hurri-Mitanni (Güzel Haber), director Gökalp Gönen’s music video is loaded with eye-catching images, as a series of dancers wander the streets, transforming into surreal and colorful figures with the help of computer graphics tech.

Gorillaz f/Beck: The Valley of the Pagans

Gorillaz f/Beck: The Valley of the Pagans

We’ve been grooving to the Gorillaz album Song Machine, Season One since it dropped, and their team-up with Beck on The Valley of the Pagans is one of our favorite tracks. Now, we have the official music video, which just happens to have been created in Grand Theft Auto V.

MYD: Moving Men

MYD: Moving Men

(PG-13) The groovy sounds of MYD and Mac DeMarco’s track Moving Men gets the perfect accompaniment in the form of this hilarious animated music video. Directed by Alexandre Nart, the clip takes us inside the everyday lives of a couple of pothead movers and the care with which they handle each and every item they move.

CICLOS: MC Marechal

CICLOS: MC Marechal

Brazilian musician, MC Marechal wrote this moody song about the circle of life from childhood to adulthood. Director Breno Moreira provides appropriately emotive visuals to accompany the track, capturing images of families living in the outskirts of Rio De Janeiro.

slowthai: Feel Away

slowthai: Feel Away

“Suddenly, I’m not half the man I used to be.” UK rapper slowthai’s smooth and emotive ballad borrows a line from The Beatles’ Yesterday, but its accompanying one-shot music video by Oscar Hudson is anything but derivative, as it follows the story of a man experiencing one very strange fever dream.

Husky: Never Ever

Husky: Never Ever

(PG-13: Gore) The video for Siberian rapper Dmitry “Husky” Kuznetsov’s track Never Ever is a bloody journey into the world of a janitor who is tasked with cleaning up the aftermath of deadly gang battles. It’s a macabre subject handled with visual aplomb by writer/director Evgenii Bakirov and cinematographer Kirill Groshev.

BRONSON: Keep Moving

BRONSON: Keep Moving

BRONSON is a collaboration between the members of ODESZA and Golden Features, and the music video for Keep Moving perfectly suits the track’s industrial beats, thanks to StyleWar’s deft juggling of stock corporate videos and insane visual effects.

The Weeknd: Snowchild

The Weeknd: Snowchild

The official music video for “Snowchild” pairs cinematic, anime imagery with The Weeknd’s autobiographical track about his quick rise to fame and fortune, his struggles with drugs, and the challenges that come with celebrity life. Directed by Arthell Isom of D’ART Shtajio.
