Who gonna beat me down?
Tell it, tell it
Who got the beat this time?

There is an instrument showing
it’s the genre of rock/ indie. This
is backed up by the clothing of
the drummer. Then there is no
person around him which brings
all focus to him. Then his head
changes into a boot showing the
randomness of the video. Then
the video goes into a close up
shot of the singer. The dull
background shows the genre of
indie as other videos like oasisimportance of being idle is dark
Editing/ Transitions:The guy’s head
gets took off his body and CGI replaces it
with a boot, it then goes to a close up.
There are many different aspects
of this video this makes it
confusing for the viewer to see
what is going on in the scene.
The singer is wearing a snapback
this is not normally seen in the
genre of Indie, this could be
confusing to what genre the
song falls under. The amount of
editing in this video is extreme
there are allot of things going on
at once. Then it goes to a long
shot of the band in a dark room
and a spot light on them.

In this scene there is a more dark
theme like in miles kane- come
closer this backs up the genre of
indie and all the members of the
band look rather miserable and
small because of the camera
angle this is also shown in the
song as it goes slower and
quieter. The spot light in the
dark is making the viewer look at
that certain area. The way the
members look shows the genre.
The distance shows they want to
be apart which comes to
represent a gothic theme.
Editing/ Transitions:the only
editing technique is slow motion
