Video: AU - "OJ"

Posted by Ned Lannamann on Tue, Apr 24, 2012 at 12:15 PM


Today in two-letter words: Here is the dazzling new video from AU, for their song "OJ." It's a colorful, kaleidoscopic clip created, animated, and directed by Takafumi Tsuchiya, who also did AU's video for "Ida Walked Away."

"OJ" is one of the densest, dizziest songs on AU's excellent new record Both Lights—one of the most confounding stylistically (AU songwriter Luke Wyland says it was also one of the hardest to finish)—but it's given excellent, fluid treatment here in Tsuchiya's video, brimming with pleasing pastels and quick-moving animation. It's a beautiful thing to look at.
