Lost at E Minor | Video Review:
This Award-Winning, Star Trek inspired music video is INSANELY good
Indigenous Robot is not your run of the mill band – they’re a band with ‘out there’ ideals and uniquely awesome sound that can only be described as ‘modernly retro’. If you like the music of indie legends The Flaming Lips and the sounds of psychedelic rock legends The Doors, then this is the band for you. This is their music video for their latest song One World– which is wonderfully odd, yet amazingly well put together music video. It has won an award for ‘Outstanding Music Video’ from Zed Fest Film Festival and has been shortlisted for others. The notable thing about this video is that the editing, effects, and style are something that matches with the sounds, beat, and feel of the song so well.
Bolder Beat | Video Premiere:
"Denver’s Indigenous Robot are not your run-of-the-mill “out there” sort of band. Instead, they’re more a culmination of "out there" ideals ranging from hints of indie legends The Flaming Lips to psychedelic rock legends The Doors. Even better, they just released a video that sums up their artistry for their latest song “One World.”
As you can see, Indigenous Robot doesn’t hesitate to put it all out there. Their video (which looks to be filmed at none other than Colorado Springs' own Garden of the Gods) highlights a retro Star Trek vibe while managing to include some modern day video tech, which is fitting because a lot about Indigenous Robot and their sound is modernly retro. The video has already won "Outstanding Music Video" by Zed Fest Film Festival.
Regarding their song “One World,” the band does well both grounding the listener with their gritty dirge-like bass and guitar while also allowing the mind to wander with shimmering vocal effects over calm singing and synths. Interestingly enough, the band’s ability to create an almost mundane, yet groove-laden arrangement manages to hook the listener and leaves a haunting reverie throughout the experience. It reminds me a great deal of some of Queens of the Stone Age’s deeper cuts and fan favorites “I Think I Lost My Headache” and “Gonna Leave You”.
