Enter Shikari 'The Sights' by Kristian Young
Enter Shikari, the first band on the moon. And what a good plan that is - until the set starts to fall apart at the seams, and we see the directors and PR team desperately attempt to keep things going with a band clearly not that comfortable performing in spacesuits.
Kristian Young's video for The Sights goes smoothly into meta video territory, turning the video into a critique of badly conceived music video concepts and eventually championing the merits of honest band performance, as the band ditch the space garb for normal clothes.
There's a couple of amusing digressions from the track involving the band along the way, but, quite honestly, that lunar set just isn't that bad...
“We managed to create an incredible lunar landscape with the help of the Oscar-winning set building company Cod Steaks, paired with a brilliant performance from the band made for an outstanding video, considering our tight budget. As the track plays out, the set falls apart and we switched to and from BTS, improvising a lot of the scenes we captured some genuinely funny moments.”
