It only took 56 seconds for me to realize this is probably one of the cutest music videos I have ever seen. Following the hilarious video the band made for “Living Decorations“, Maps & Atlases is back with another entertaining video for the track “Israeli Caves“. This one is a bit more charming and less over the top (no choreographed dance session), but equally another great artistic and fun statement to accompany the band’s artistic and intriguing music.
I don’t like to give anything away, but here are my top three reasons to love this video:
1. Cute Kid
2. Cute Kid Plotting Revenge
3. Fight scene that rivals the one in PUSA’s “Peaches” video
“Israeli Caves” is the third single from 2010’s Perch Patchwork [Barsuk], and it seems the band is in serious high gear about making the right moves to get their music out there. What I love about this video, as well as the others, is that while there is a great, captivating visual story being told, the music neither overpowers nor becomes background to what is happening on-screen. It’s an entertaining short story, set to a pleasant song, and the two work well together.
