The Year in Music Videos – March

March was very much a month of weird, weird clips, but that’s what we’re here for.

The Klaxons (who are no stranger to weirdness) turned in this rather off clip for Gravity’s Rainbow , which I can only hope is a bizarre nod to Total Eclipse of the Heart.

The Bees popped up on the ‘Buddha’s radar with the Selig style animated romp for Who Cares What The Question Is?, and I can’t think of a finer introduction to this great band.

A double shot from Sweden’s prolific siblings Karin Dreijer Andersson and Olof Dreijer, as the clips for The Knife’s Pass This On and You Take My Breath Away both popped up on the front page over the course of February. You Take My Breath Away is a 80’s fueled disco nightmare (co-starring Rilo Kiley’s Jenny Wilson) while Pass This On certainly counts as one of the more uncomfortable videos I’d seen in a while with an earnest drag queen performing to a perplexed crowd.

Speaking of Knives, Grizzly Bear’s clip for Knife most certainly counts as the most ambitious clip of the month, and arguably it’s the most visually arresting one, to boot. The sci-fi weird fest (which took 6 months to complete) is just perfect for the tune, which in itself is kinda odd.
