In Passion Pit’s new video for “Take A Walk” we are given the unique perspective of being a blue bouncy ball soaring over Philadelphia, snooping on all the residents.
Lead vocalist Michael Angelakos is snoozing in the middle of the street (we do not endorse this) when a dog comes up and starts bugging him. He throws a blue bouncy ball to get rid of the little guy but I guess he’s got superhuman strength because it starts bouncing way over houses and through parks, all the way to the city.
In the video, directed by The Creators Project, we get a glimpse of a triple bike/car/pedestrian accident, a kid playing baseball and Angelakos singing on a roodtop.
The song is the first tack from their forthcoming album Gossamer, set to be released on July 24.
“Breath of Life,” Florence and the Machine
The upcoming blockbuster Snow White and the Huntsman is set to be released on June 1, and who better to create the lead single for the epic tale than cinematic songstress Florence Welch and her Machine? “Breath of Life” is possibly one of Welch’s most dramatic songs to date, with pounding drums, and a 60-person choir backing Welch’s intense voice. The video for the single shows Welch recording the track in London’s Abbey Road Studios, 60-person choir included, with vivid scenes from the film woven through the recording session. The video looks like an impressive trailer for the Snow White re-interpretation, and I will definitely be forking over 10 dollars or more at the movie theatre to watch it. You can hear “Breath of Life” on the film’s soundtrack, which will be available May 29.
“Part 5: Su-Barbie-a,” Marina and the Diamonds
A few days ago, Marina Diamandis uploaded this gem onto the Marina and the Diamonds YouTube channel. It’s Part 5 of her online video anthology, which exposes the four female archetypes that her new album Electra Heart is based on. The video is a two-minute flurry of various audio clips from old Hollywood films and Barbie doll advertisements all playing over the instrumental track from her song “Valley of the Dolls.” It also features Diamandis in a creepy Stepford-esque outfit standing in front of a perfect house, with her face engulfed in shadows. The next video to be released will be “Part 6: Power and Control.”
