Röyksopp - What Else Is There / Martin De Thurah

Röyksopp - What Else Is There?

The bastard did it again!

This Danish young director Martin De Thurah, behind Carpark North - Human and Mew - Special directed this beautiful and haunting mystery for Norwegian duo called Röyksopp.

I'm thinking again that could this be the coolest video of the year, so far?

Hot damn this one looks good!

wonderful wonderful wonderful. glad to see him break out of his (very) minor slump.

yeah that was cool. A bit too eurotrash to be in the same league as Human; but a lot of great images and nice to see he's branching out.

Who knew Lizzie Grubman had such a great voice?

subtle power. a few too many elements, but pretty fresh all in all. (are flying buildings in now?)

wow, great. kinda creepy but still great!

And btw that pretty face in the video is not behind the singing voice. The singer is Karin Dreijer from Swedish band called The Knife. Excellent stuff if you like that kind of music. That girl is just some Scandinavian model. Pretty though.

Ehhhh...this is good...has powerful imagery...great mood and texture....but rather meaningless in the end. It just doesn't hit me like "Human" did.

milka, really??

I got to say I've lost a notch of respect for it.

pet peeve, maybe, but when you have prettier actors portray the singer/musician - seems like a copout.

Though this doesn't necessarily apply to videos where the musicians are so well known - like, um, George Michael's Freedom video.... or some of Elton John's recent vids.

I don't think Karin Dreijer (the singer) has any objections to this approach. she just doesn't seem to have any desire to be in the spotlight. they had a tranny lip sync her vocals in The Knife's video for Pass This On.
and this is just about one of my favorite videos ever but I can't find the quicktime link. :(

Wow. I do like Carpark North, "Human" better, but this one is still great. Wow.

You can not be serious! Like all of deTharahs videos this one's also some pretentious shit. We've allready seen that in the '90s.


         
progosk, October 14, 2005 9:46:48 AM CEST

1man, they've taken pass this on offline cause it's on a dvd now. there's a clip here (looks interesting, johan renck often does...)


         
sdelahoyde, October 14, 2005 5:29:50 PM CEST

I don't get it. It's pretty, but it doesn't do anything for me. Those repeated shots of her legs slowly flying over the ground particularly didn't elicit any wows from me. I got over the "Isn't it crazy?! Everything's floating!" feeling pretty quickly.

The other girl in the video is Karin Dreijer, the singer as pointed out earlier.


         
hiscores, October 14, 2005 7:43:36 PM CEST

dreijer was not available to do the whole video, so they compromised. incidentally, renck is one of de thurah's fav directors.

You know...I've come around on this one.

Even without blatant literal meaning, the visuals heighten the song magnificently. When I listen to the song by itself, I see this video in my head...and I like it. I don't feel a need for a literal narrative forcing me in any direction. The dog's face juxtaposed against the sky is brilliant.


         
progosk, October 15, 2005 10:51:26 PM CEST

1man, here's a bigger&longer clip from pass it on.

(and also some work for any eager beaver out there: the parent is wide open, and these folks have a fairly interesting roster...)


         
1manguy, October 16, 2005 2:04:28 PM CEST

YAY! Thanks for finding that progosk! and this might be old news but I just read that Johan Renck is directing Madonna's new video. Should be interesting.


         
redkillmachine, October 19, 2005 7:00:13 PM CEST

Uh...what's that stuff dripping down her leg? WTF? And that haircolour definately does NOT work for her. That's all I could think about while watching this video. I do like the song, though.

This one is cool Kev, like the vocals too
