Shigeto’s music is pretty interesting as you may have found out after reading our album review of Shigeto’s No Better Time Than Now. If you did take a read through that review and listen to some of his sounds, it probably won’t come as a surprise to you that the music video for his track Detroit Part 1 is rather experimental.
Taking a trippy twist on the classic location shots found in many music videos, video director Rafe Scobery-Thal wanted to craft something different to suit Shigeto’s music. Here’s what Shigeto said about the video and the concepts behind it:
“We wanted to make a video for Detroit Part 1 that wasn’t a “Detroit” video if you get me. We didn’t want your run of the mill, driving around in a Ford past the train station, Coney Island, showing all the ruin porn etc. We wanted to convey how ‘Detroit Part 1′ was about my life in Detroit and the experiences I have had in the time I’ve been here. Rafe and I came up with the idea to bring the audience into a very psychedelic dream of mine, loosely representing what had happened in the last year for me.”
