Music Videos of Röyksopp

>> Monday, March 02, 2009

Last Friday, Andy at Towleroad posted a new video from the Norwegian electronica group Röyksopp called Happy Up Here. It's a very cute video with night city views, lots of lights that turn into the classic arcade game space invader theme.

I thought the name Royksopp sounded very familiar and when I clicked on Towleroad's link, I got into a list of Royksopp's videos and I was reminded that one of their song "Remind Me" was used in the annoying Geico cavemen commercials. It's a good song and its original music video was amazing. Actually the music video won a few awards and the airplane instructional type graphics are awesome.

Remind Me (2002)

All of Royksopp's music videos are great, they are all well produced and inspiring. That's surely a way to make yourself famous. And of course, you have to have good music to back it up. They reminded me of when Bjork first came out and released a whole bunch of great videos produced by Michel Gondry. They were truly amazing back then. The generic pop princesses mouthing and posing to their own tunes seems anemic in comparison.

A track entitled Poor Leno in particular reminds me of Björk's Jóga mixed with animations that reminds me of Gorillaz. It's pretty damn sweet.
