The Broken Bells new 3-D, Interactive video for “October” premiered yesterday on Wired.com. It’s not really a music video per say, it’s just a bunch of flash and you move around your mouse to make lines. Honestly, it’s kind of stupid and nothing spectacular. Really, it’s a waste of time…
You can play around with the “video” here.
The video, which premiered on Wired.com yesterday was an idea fleshed out by Brian Burton along with flash developer Richard Lehmann and illustrator Matthew Hollister. As Wired explains, “the group’s 3-D project allows surfers to navigate, save and share a strange universe of mathematical equations, geometric shapes and evocative illustrations. It’s a head trip made more poignant by the pop-hop balladry of Broken Bells’ haunting new single.”
In other news, the band will be on tour in the US this fall with dates in LA, NYC, Oakland and Austin!
