Watch: Foster the People’s ‘Pseudologia Fantastica’

pseudologia_fantastica

As the name would suggest, Foster The People‘s video for their 2014 hit Pseudologia Fantastica takes you on a neon-coloured journey to an animated, faraway land of mythical beasts and creatures. The idea for the  third music clip from their album Supermodel came from the mind of Mark Foster himself, with the singer stating:

“The idea for this popped into my head while I was driving through Cuba. Originally I had wanted the music video to be half animation and half performance. I was traveling with a director friend of mine and was picking his brain about some practical film tricks to help merge the two worlds (real life and animated). I ended up deciding that full animation would be a more cohesive world to live in and scrapped the performance part of the video. The imagery came as fast as I could write.

Part of it was inspired by my surroundings. We drove past dilapidated billboards of Che Guevera looking infinite and militant, set to the text of some old communist slogan; swerving to miss pot holes and the occasional cow. I spoke to highly educated locals forced into working menial jobs because they couldn’t live off of their monthly allowance provided by the state. At the same time I could feel their hope, passion, and desire to create freely, set against one of the most vibrant and beautiful landscapes I’ve ever seen. People lived off the land but could barely stand straight – posture buckling under the strong, unrelenting hand of the government. These are some of the images that fueled the video. It was enlightening to see the similarities between our two governments, after only being aware of the differences. Cash is king. “

The clip was animated and co-directed by Hannes/Johannes and can be streamed exclusively here.

Arctic Monkeys release meaty music video for Snap Out Of It

snapoutofit3

Arctic Monkeys have released the video clip to accompany the 2013 hit Snap Out Of It. Directed by production company Focus Creeps and starring actress Stephanie Sigman, the video is a curious watch, with certain symbolisms I just can’t put my finger on.

Does it resemble heartbreak? A fangirl’s unrequited love? Or perhaps it describes what an always-helpful YouTube commenter has suggested:

Watch the video and decide for yourself. Vegans, look away.
