Berlin Music Video Awards pt.1

Sometimes you have to wait longer for something good. I did or will actually. The Berlin music video awards will take place between 24th and 28th of April 2013. It's the first time ever this competition is held here. I saw only some of the participants, but you can check all of them at their homepage and find also links in their Facebook page.

You can buy tickets to the voting days to see all the music videos (which is my plan). Not so often you get the chance to see so many different and awesome music videos from a big screen!

They have all different kinds of videos competing. Some very beautiful, strange, awkward, cheesy or scary. I like how broad scale of videos there's going to be! Time to forget the "usual" music videos.

I'll just link some of the coolest ones I have seen so far. But there's going to be a second post for sure about the subject later on!

This had most intrigging (if that is the right word for it) voice I have heard for a while! Its the voice of the guitarist in the band called Joe Newman. I just love the sound of the voice of the singer. And the video is quite far from the usual if you watch carefully. Got many aww moments while watching this. Not gonna spoil any more than this. And the band is ∆  (the delta sign) but they have it pronounced Alt-j, which is the shortcut for delta sign in mac computers.

∆ - Alt-j - "Fitzpleasure"

Alt-j released their debut album "An Awesome wave" in 2012. Find them on Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/altJ.band

Oh black and white video clips can be strange...and they don't need to be old to be black and white.
Bit Burial style.

"leave a light, leave a light on for me, I'll be home
 don't give up on me, please, leave a light"

Phon.o - "Leave a light on" feat. Tunde Olaniran

Phon.o is old friends with Apparat. Check more awesome stuff from him here:

Will the small toy bunnies take over the world together with teknology?

"-Go away, I'm no longer human.
 - We are all teknology.

Won't say anything from the last one. Just watch it. Listen in loud. Good night.
