In today’s day and age music videos are something that with artist’s creativity can be taken any direction and to any extreme that they want. Starting now I will provide a weekly write up on the newest music videos in dance music to show you just how imaginative they can get. This week I’m focusing on a peculiar film from TEPR, Kaskade‘s video for “Whatever”, and Steve Angello‘s ‘Tiger”.
TEPR – “Half Below”
I wasn’t exaggerating when I said peculiar as the new video for “Half Below” shows off a trippy side with all manner of animated mouths, including mouths that replace eyes on Destable’s face. Destable tells PopMatters that he “had this idea of a ‘three mouths face’ music video for a while now and to me it seemed impossible to achieve unless I could have the Pixar army under my command. Then one day, the ELMO boss texted me out of nowhere ‘Dude, I love your music, let’s make a video together’. I knew their motion design and 3D work from the Martin Solveig’s videos so I was excited. I proposed my ‘mouths’ idea and three months later I received this insane / cute / weird / fun video that takes the dark tone of the track away, but still keep it in a ‘freak show’ vibe.”

Kaskade – “Whatever” ft. KOLAJ
The newly released music video for Kaskade’s “Whatever”, one of the album’s lead singles, examines how quickly feelings change, with its rapid moving environments and views. Featuring LA-based electronic duo KOLAJ, it showcases the trademark breathy, heavenly female vocals we’ve come to associate with Kaskade’s tracks.

Steve Angello – “Tiger”
Steve Angello continues to embrace his creative juices with yet another visually-stimulating music video for “Tiger,” off his recently released studio album Wild Youth. Directed by Fredrik Hvass, Angello balances beauty and darkness with a gut-wrenching video concept that proves to be as animalistic as the track’s title.
