OK Go is awesome
Grammy-Award winning group OK Go has released their latest video, "This Too Shall Pass," and it is more of the usual from this 4-piece rock group. "More of the usual," in this case = awesome! For those who don't know, OK Go has become popular for their music videos, most of which are one-take, and usually feature a dancing number of some sort.
Their first big hit was "A Million Ways," which featured the group dancing in a yard. At that point, they were not yet mainstream; just a hit with the "MySpace generation" and college kids. It wasn't until their next video for "Here it Goes Again" (aka the treadmill video) that they became a pretty big deal.
They released two videos for their next song, "Do What You Want." The first one has them performing their song with some really trippy camera work. The second video was the one released to music channels. It has a weird theme to it... Everything is the same pattern... I'll leave it at that.
The thing about OK Go that is really cool is that they're actually a good band. Their last album, "Oh no" is one that I can listen to from beginning to end. There is seriously not a song on the disk that I don't like. That's why I'm really excited for their new album "Of the Blue Colour of the Sky." Based off the first single, it should be a cool follow-up to "Oh no."
