Music Videos of the Month

We have treats from Panda Bear, Clark, Diagram, Tourist, and Bastille Vs. Grades to share with you this month, but to kick things off, here’s Guy Pearce as you’ve never quite seen him before…

Directed by Tim White, this video, which is for Pearce’s song Fly All The Way, sees the actor in manic form, taking on various themes of modern life – including society’s obsession with youth and beauty – through a spoof of crappy TV infomercials. Production company: Plot Media.

There’s been some lovely animated promos released this month. First up is this video for Panda Bear, for new track Boys Latin. Directed by Isaiah Saxon and Sean Hellfritsch (of Encyclopedia Pictura fame), it is a beautiful journey across land and sea. Production company: Ghost Robot.

Our second animated piece comes from directing team Persistent Peril and is for the track Phantom Power by Diagram. The video tells the story of a broken-hearted man who goes into the woods to reflect on his relationship. Illustration: Garth Jones; Animation: Garth Jones, Mark Billington, Ginny Jones.

Our final animation this month is a graphics influenced piece by director Nicolas Ménard, created for Tourist’s track Illuminate. Production company: Nexus.

Next up is a dark and hypnotic film from director Chris Hewitt, which provides the perfect accompaniment to the track Winter Linn by Clark. Production company: Knucklehead.

We finish this month’s selection with a film for the track Torn Apart by Bastille Vs. Grades, which muses upon the nature of love. As it is directed Keith Schofield though, it is anything but schmaltzy, and is instead weird, unexpected and very funny. Production company: Caviar.
