Okay so I said I would be posting a lot of stuff about H+ in the coming week, but I stumbled across this music video by Eytan and the Embassy which is completely unrelated. Apparently it holds the world record for the most number of quick changes in an unedited music video. I’m not sure what that means, exactly. Is that Guinness Book or just a guess? Regardless, they pull off a pretty impressive feat.
I’ve never heard of the band, but my buddy Tim Nordwind of OKGO just posted the video on Facebook, and if there’s anyone who knows about good music videos, it’s that guy. I just checked out Eytan and the Embassy’s site, and it turns out they actually opened for OKGO back in 2010. Which isn’t surprising. If you like OKGO’s sound, you’ll dig this stuff. It’s definitely cut from the same cloth.
In fact, the music video itself is clearly inspired by the best of OKGO’s viral vids. It’s a pretty rad video that features the artist quick changing into a variety of music legends. And I guess it sort of reminded me that I used to use this blog for more than just promoting my own work. So now that I’m getting back into the swing of things, I figured it would make for a great interim post.
Check it out.
Eytan and the Embassy – Everything Changes
What did I tell you? Pretty fantastic, huh? Can you name all the artists they’re paying homage to in the video?
Also, what’s the deal with this band photo? Is it a requirement that at least one photo in a session has to include the band crammed together looking up and directly into the camera? That’s not sarcasm. It’s an honest question to all my musician friends.
Okay, maybe a touch of sarcasm.
