The Japanese Popstars Feat. Green Velvet - Let Go
:this animation video is amazing layer for d great song, or d opposite direction d track is great layer for this illustrations that can blow ur mind. I really like this street style drawings, mixed like a creature that is changing d perspectives, inside, outsides, eyes..etc.
.d colors are so soft and disco in same time, pretty modern and stunning how this combination is moved by d rhythm & d dynamic of this story.
From king motion pictures we read:
This is a perfect example of a great video taking an already sick song to the next level. Let’s face it, the song by itself is fire. It’s got that perfect blend of live drums and live bass layered over techno synth and heavily produced vocals – indie dance performed with sublime perfection. The record treads that tightrope between raw and over-produced, but never falls off. The result is a track bursting with the energy of a live show with the quality of a solid studio effort.
Let Go conveys all the elements of a successful dance song: driving rhythm, catchy hook, bumping synths, and an awesome drop.
The real success of this video is that it captures the driving rhythm of the song to perfection. The record takes a rock solid bass riff and pushes it through different tones as it builds towards the big drop.
The video picks up on this theme perfectly with its mind-bending loops that slowly evolve and blend into something completely different. That creepy face with the radiation goggles is a psychotic representation of the voice on the track, but it fits in perfectly in the trippy world the creative minds behind this video dream up.
What really gets me going about this video is how it keeps moving with the song. The synch between the animation and the music is perfect – not quite the same effect as this classic Chemical Brothers cut, but definitely along these lines. Plus, the band gets an appearance at 1:38 without taking up too much screen time, and fitting in perfectly with the theme of the video.
For its awesome pop-art feel, its trippy imagery, and its driving pace, this video gets huge respect. Check out the making of the video here.
