Not too many music video knock me flat these days, but I had to write a post about Slow Poison by The Bravery. Beautifully crafted with lots of smooth effects and motion graphics barking back to the psychedelic scene from 2001: A Space Odyssey. According to Buck, the production company behind the video:
“With a four week production schedule and a love song of sorts, we travelled back in time to the late seventies and joined a cult of psychonauts to make a video about alien panther love, ontology, and inter-dimensional space travel.”
Late seventies? Psychonauts? Panther love? How could I not love all those things when they are packaged into a full spectrum space scene full of neon lines and lens flares? Man, I would have loved to have been part of the team working on this one.
Swing over to check out the video on Buck’s website. And a big thanks to Steve MacKenzie for sending over the link. You rock.
Hell. That looks disturbingly similar to an editorial I am working on, due next week. Oh well, back to the drawing board.
ha! Nice! Didn’t realize you had posted it by the time I tweeted you.
Pretty funky video
awesome song and awesome clip , thanks for sharing
wow this video is amazing omg!!!!
I love this video, just caught it a few minutes ago on Changethethought. Absolutely awesome. quick note though. I don’t know if it is just me getting way into spacey stuff lately or what, but I am seeing this sort of art and videos all over the place. Sort of retro/cosmonaut space and technology applied to almost anything, just an observation…
i’ve never paid attention to the bravery… since i mostly listen to music in spanish… but i do listen to music in english. its amazing… it also reminds me a little of your work…
Oh, just thought I’d mention, this is the music video of the week on iTunes this week. Just thought I’d let you know :)
