Our Brother the Native | Younger
I’m not even done watching this video myself and I’m already blogging about it. It’s absolutely phenomenal. This band, Our Brother the Native, is apparently comprised of kids that aren’t even done with high school, yet they’ve got the aural palette mature and experienced musicians often fail to attain.
It’s creepy, odd, electro-acoustic that doesn’t sacrifice any beauty for the sake of its ephemera and eeriness.
The video itself is a weird 1960s bicycle safety video starring a bunch of kids in monkey/skull masks and prehensile tails. Add in some “kablam!” type animation whenever one of the kids is struck by (easily preventable) danger and you’ve got a bad ass video.
I am severely impressed with this effort.
