Networks’ Upbeat, Bubbly Video for “Ake-Vono”
For most of us, a passenger airline disintegrating in midair is the stuff of nightmares. In the upbeat and bubbly clip for NETWORKS’ track “Ake-Vono,” it’s the first step on a spirited journey through space. The color palette is every bit as inviting as the production and soaring vocals from the Japanese band, which they proclaim on their website is “a mission to meet your body and life by our music vibration.” The visual half of the collaboration is thanks to Kohei Yoshino, whose oeuvre is extensive and also entirely in Japanese. But I guess that’s what happens when you discover things on the Internet. On second thought, I wonder if this video might be one big metaphor for such a thing.
