Grammy nominated group Ok Go, who have garnered attention before for their very original music videos, have released yet another stunning video, this time for their single “Needing/Getting.”
When indie group Ok Go released the video for “A Million Ways” back in 2005, they became known for the “homemade” feeling they brought to their work. This and videos after it feature the band performing choreography similar to viral videos posted to various websites or elaborate ways of creating sounds and became trademarks of the group’s. This time, they collaborated with the Cheverolet company to create the video for the single “Needing/Getting” from their most recent album Of the Blue Colour of the Sky.
The official video description:
The new music video from OK Go, made in partnership with Chevrolet. OK Go set up over 1000 instruments over two miles of desert outside Los Angeles. A Chevy Sonic was outfitted with retractable pneumatic arms designed to play the instruments, and the band recorded this version of Needing/Getting, singing as they played the instrument array with the car. The video took 4 months of preparation and 4 days of shooting and recording. There are no ringers or stand-ins; Damian took stunt driving lessons. Each piano had the lowest octaves tuned to the same note so that they’d play the right note no matter where they were struck. Many thanks to Chevy for believing in and supporting such an insane and ambitious project, and to Gretsch for providing the guitars and amps.
