Five of our favourite music videos

And these are all songs you’ll hear on AFTRS FM! Listen via iHeartRadio.

Flesh Without Blood/Life In The Vivid Dream – Grimes

This clip (directed by Grimes herself) has the most wonderful colour scheme, costumes and features a fair bit of blood…

Simple Song – The Shins

A dying father records a video for the children he is leaving behind. He’s hidden his deed somewhere in the house and the first sibling to find it gets everything… chaos ensues.

Intergalactic – Beastie Boys

This video features a giant robot, an octopus-headed creature and is a parody of Japanese Kaiju films. It was directed by MCA (under the pseudonym of  Nathanial Hörnblowér) in 1998. They really don’t make them like this anymore…

Once In A Lifetime – Talking Heads

David Byrne takes dorking dancing to a new level in this video clip. Watch for: tight suits, bowties, warped background visuals, out-of-sync dancing and clips from old films. Classic 1981.

Look What You Made Me Do – Taylor Swift

There was a lot of hype around this video’s release, and it’s on track to beat Adele’s Vevo record for most views in 24 hours. It’s at 42 million views and counting…

There is so much packed into this video that there are countless articles springing up that help decode and explain all of the elements (and disses).
