Robyn as the Girl, Robot as the Robot, and the guys from Röyksopp as salesmen.

Tell me, what do you think about the recent Röyksopp‘s music video? It’s not a good one, is it? It’s not funny, it’s not sensual, but it tries to be both. And the twist in the end is just ridiculous. On the other hand, it’s not that bad visually. Hm, I’d rather say it’s a poor video, but I like the song, so here you go:

If you want to see a good music video that goes in pair with a good song, have a look at The Gossip‘s ‘Heavy Cross’. Black and gold. And silver. Lots of glitter and a lot of charismatic Beth that reminds me here of Ursula from Disney’s Little Mermaid somehow. The video is ascetic and glamorous at the same time, well done!

Another video for today is my latest guilty pleasure ‘When Love Takes Over’ by David Guetta featuring Kelly Rowland. Even though it’s nothing special, Jonas Åkerlund set a nice summer vibe within the video that matches the song just fine, so extra points for doing that.

Finally, the music video for my summer anthem – terrific ‘Raindrops’ from upcoming Basement Jaxx sixth LP! I can’t wait to see them again in a few weeks, woohoo! The video is vivid, hypnotyzing, colourful and sexy, so again – the perfect combination with the song. Directed by Jess Holzworth.

    starting with Royksopp – i’d rather see their video as a joke. the pregnancy test? well.. but Torbjorn and Svein are truly charming even if it’s only for a few seconds 🙂

    and Gossip – woohoo!
    i’ve heard ‘heavy cross’ a few times on the radio but now, thanks to You my friend, i’m stuck!
    both track and video are simple but classy. can’t wait to see them live.
