OneRepublic’s latest music video for their song “Good Life” off their album “Waking Up” is fantastic. I love the creativity, simplicity, and design of this production. And the song has really grown on me since I first heard it. I still like “All The Right Moves” and “Secrets” the best on this album, but now that I have the entire album, there are a lot of good songs on it. Including “Made For You” and “Fear”. Check the band out on iTunes and get some of their music if you haven’t already. Clearly this is another talented band, much like Lifehouse and Coldplay…with a heart and soul to their music, but also a solid rock band quality.
I love the clever concept of using art canvas, and its texture, as the visual theme for this video. It really works well here. Giving all of the “canvas” scenes out in the landscape of what looks like New Mexico (or maybe its Northern California) an oil painting look on the canvas texture is a unique style. The brown, green, black colors of that photography, along with the strong contrast, have a nice natural and artistic feel to them. Overall, I can’t say enough about the quality of the music and videos that OneRepublic puts out. This is simply another great example of their work. I look forward to the next one. Enjoy each of the individual photographic paintings below from the video.
