Video: The Growlers – “I’ll Be Around”

posted by Oscar October 17, 2016

The Growlers have released their new visuals for City Club stand-out track, “I’ll Be Around.” The music video for the Julian Casablancas-produced song was directed by Warren Fu, (The Strokes, Weezer, and HAIM) who took inspiration from films like Little Shop of Horrors for the concept. WIth the premiere on Rolling Stone, Fu said:

The band have created this eclectic style that’s all their own, yet there are no real rules in their world… So while this was the band’s concept, they were open to me throwing in my own ideas, such as the impatient Grim Reaper.

The video follows the band’s lead singer Brooks Nielson as he is carried into a hospital with a bloody nose and shortly flatlines despite efforts to revive him. While the rest of the band and the crew that arrived with Nielson shortly grieved, it soon became a celebration with a Soul Train line and everything, that the ghost of the vocalist eventually crashes. Check out the video above.

Revisit our review of The Growlers’ new album City Club and catch them this weekend at their annual Beach Goth festival.

Video: Julian Casablancas + The Voidz – “Human Sadness”

posted by Oscar May 27, 2015

Julian Casablancas has finally shared the visuals for “Human Sadness,” his track with his other band The Voidz. The 13 minute-long Tyranny song’s post-apocalyptic video was put together with directors Warren Fu and Nicholaus Goossen, and Jules himself says it was inspired by the Titanic’s eight-member orchestra, who are said to have played until their deaths.

Casablancas told Rolling Stone:

“It just seemed like a fitting concept… The world’s gonna end and you decide to play music. That’s basically what happened on the Titanic and in a weird, dark, ‘sad’ way – forgive me – it’s kind of like life: dark. But you can look at life as ‘managing denial.'”

Check out the video above.

Video: Weezer – “Back To The Shack”

posted by Oscar September 29, 2014

In other Weezer news today, here’s the video for “Back To The Shack.” The visuals for lead single from Everything Will Be Alright In The End were directed by Warren Fu (Daft Punk, Julian Casablancas, HAIM) and it stars the band playing on the surface of the moon. While the classic nerd rockers didn’t wear any of the cool suits or even helmets you’d expect to see when you know they’re supposed to be on the moon, they did however dress in traditional astronaut colors.

Stick around for the Neil Armstrong “cameo” and the floating guitar pick in space in the end.

Video: HAIM – “If I Could Change Your Mind”

posted by Oscar February 24, 2014

Sister band HAIM have released their latest set of visuals to go along with their Days Are Gone track, “If I Could Change Your Mind.” The music video was directed by Warren Fu and choreographed by Fatima Robinson and showcases the band dancing along to the track, with the same choreography played out in different settings/lighting. If you think it looks awfully similar to Daft Punk’s “Instant Crush,” it’s because these two videos were both directed by Fu. Still, seeing this trio doing choreography, and well at that, turned out to be pretty cool.
