We’ve seen a few inventive music videos come our way in the last few months as a result of current circumstances. Some of them are wonderfully creative and others shine with simplicity. One of our favourites so far is the music video for ‘Dark and Depressive’ from Indie-rock duo Oxen, who filmed theirs in an old gym.
“It was somewhat hard finding a film crew, or the money to pay them, when there was a raging pandemic going on. But there’s this kind of old school gym in the same building I live in and although neither of us got a lot of experience lifting heavy stuff, there was a certain vibe and smell that went well together with our visual goal for this video.” – Oxen share the story behind the video.
One can only imagine the smell the pair had to contend with while shooting the video. However, the stoic attitude maintained throughout provides a twisted sense of humour that appeals to us right now. We think it will probably appeal to you too. Check it out below:
