Music Video Monday: Sigur Rós – Hoppipolla

Introduction

I’ve debated starting this theme for a few weeks, and I ultimately decided I would as it would encourage me to looks for options that actually fit what I’m aiming for. If one pays too much attention to Top 40 type music you tend to see a dearth of creativity in the music video form. The music video is spawned from short films and can be as creative if not more so than their predecessor. Far too often it does just become singing heads. I want to try and buck that trend and find ones both new and old that do something somewhat outside the box, at the very least have some sort of visual narrative. Here we go.

Sigur Rós – Hoppipolla

Really easy to intro this music video if you get the reference I am to make: this video is like Speilberg’s segment in The Twilight Zone Movie without the literal transformation. If you don’t get it just push play and you’ll soon see what it means.
