During the synth intro, you see five sets of arms wiggle listlessly. When the beat kicks in, they pump with a bit more rhythm. But the faceless performers aren’t dancing—well, at least not of their own volition. Instead, they’re serving as a human visualizer, shocked into action (literally) by carefully placed electrodes. It’s a music video that will definitely make you wince, but not because of how bad it is.
The song is “Straight&Arrow,” by the New York-based musician Falty DL, and the mad genius behind the clip is Daito Manabe, a Tokyo-based artist.
Intriguing & thought provoking. I like this quite a lot.
