Music Video Friday: Sakanaction


Today’s music video is『バッハの旋律を夜に聴いたせいです。』(Bach no Senritsu o Yoru ni Kiita Sei Desu – Because of Listening to Bach’s Melodies at Night) by サカナクション (Sakanaction). This rather surreal video features the band’s frontman 山口一郎 (Ichirō Yamaguchi) and makes clever use of puppets, mirrors, atmospheric lighting and strange dancing. The video was directed by 田中 佑昌 (Tanaka Yusuke). The song itself is a nice slice of fizzing indie rock with a bit of sparkling electronica added to the mix. The band have been around since 2005 and there is a good section on their website with lots more of their music videos to watch, including one with a scary looking tarantula man in it.
