Aubrey’s latest music blog looks at Canada’s ‘Bombay’....
Wednesday, March 16, 2011
I want to change it around a bit and jump from old inspirational
videos from the past and look to the future (present day) and talk
about the exciting directing collaborative - Canada. Made up of
Luis Cerveró, Nicolás Méndez and Lope Serrano, they shook the
internet community with their Jodorowskiesque video for El
Guincho's 'Bombay'. With striking 70's style visuals (nicely done
in the photography and grade) Abstract narrative and erotic imagery
the video works on various levels.
On the back of 'Bombay', Canada signed to Partizan and went on
to make the video "what you know" for Two door cinema club. With
its simple yet effective art direction, playful choreography,
dynamic edit and pace, we are left with an elevated end result,
complimenting the up lifting nature of the track.
Check it out and enjoy!
