This surrealistic promo — love-child of the Franz Ferdinand – Timothy Saccenti collaboration — is probably one of the most peculiar band performances type of music video we have encountered. Referencing conceptual video artists from the early 80s such as Devo and The Residents, together with some Polish fantasy pieces from the 70s, while being filmed on a combination of VHS and 16 mm mediums, the video generates a unique bizarre psychedelic experience. Fascinating characters such as a frog-headed dwarf, the almost naked gorgeous lady plus a modern version of Bacchus, add to the promo’s unique-ness. Won’t be forgetting this one any time soon!

    The world of music videos has traditionally provided a perfect breeding ground to test new visual styles, VFX and editing techniques. It has also proven to be an extraordinary springboard for some of todays most acclaimed film directors, such as Spike Jonze, Baz Luhrmann and Michel Gondry, to name but three. 2Pause is the second installment of our curated music video website. The old Pause website is still online here.
