MUSIC VIDEO ANALYSIS KASABIAN- FIRE http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=agVpq_XXRmU
Kasabian are renowned for having music videos that are alternative to what most music videos are like. They stand out among the rest because of their creativity. In this music video the band are seen robbing a jewellery shop armed with guitars.
This music video goes against Goodwin's theory because there isn't any links between the visuals and the lyrics. There is a link between the editing and the music. At the start when there is just a slow paced drumbeat and lazy vocals,the visuals represent this because the editing is slow, the camera stays on one shot for quite a while. Then when the chorus kicks in the editing speed is much faster. There is a certain need to sell artist as there is with most music videos around. It features the band throughout the whole video and they are the main characters in it. There are al so a few genre characteristics that match in this video. The genre is indie. And the typical characteristics that feature in this video are that the artists feature in the video, and they have guitars which are normally associated with indie videos. Even if they are using them as weapons.
ARCTIC MONKEYS- I BET YOU LOOK GOOD ON THE DANCEFLOOR This music is very simple but effective. It just shows the band performing this track live. This uses all of the characteristics of the genre for this song which is indie. It features a typical 4 piece band performing their new track for the music video. It also shows a need to sell artist because seeing a band perform on the music video makes you want to go an watch them live . There is a good variation of shots used in this video to stop people getting bored when they watch it.
