Animated music videos can be some of the most awe inspiring and entertaining video clips imaginable. As an artistic medium it adds another layer to the music that coexists alongside one-another, reinterpreting the story of a song by creating an entirely new and unworldly representation that could otherwise not even be imagined.
When you think of animated music videos that have forged a visual imprint in our collective minds, some of the big ones are Radiohead – ‘Paranoid Android’, Daft Punk – ‘One More Time’ or literally just the entire aesthetic of the Gorillaz in general. So for the sake of this post I thought I would introduce you to some of my favorite artists the gift of animation. Enjoy and remember to support the artist you like by buying their stuff and following them.
