Abstract animated music video for this great UK-based band

Kudu Blue is looking for someone to work with on an animated video for their next single, Somebody to.

Style

Something simple and quite abstract, no need for a linear story, just something impactful. This video is a great example of that.

Think the trippy scene from Dumbo mixed with a spirograph/spiroscope mixed with the video for White Stripes 7 Nation Army! References attached below.

Ideas

Themes are healthy/unhealthy - an apple made of plastic etc.

Further theme and ideas can be discussed!

Lyrics

You’re gonna save me
I cannot hide
I’m just looking for somebody to hold
With my mind open wide

No matter what I did was never real enough
Just couldn’t open up
Didn’t want to be the effect of some objection
Was it written on my window I’m alone again
And you could tell that I needed a friend
Boy you got me shaken with that thunder
Stop me going under

You’re gonna save me
I cannot hide
I’m just looking for somebody to hold
With my mind open wide

You’re gonna save me
I cannot hide
I’m just looking for somebody to hold
With my mind open wide

All the battles from before I lay them on the dirt
You know that I don’t wanna make it hurt
History’s something that won’t turn around or burn you
You show me every day that there’s another way
And everyone you have a around you feels the same
You got me hooked upon a feeling with the way you show your love

You’re gonna save me
I cannot hide
I’m just looking for somebody to hold
With my mind open wide

About the band

Kudu Blue’s sounds combine to bring on a new wave of progressive UK modern dance-pop. Behind their outwardly cohesive sound, each member brings a distinct style with influences spanning from Massive Attack to reggae. Driven by talent, curiosity and an unyielding can-do attitude, the act gives a refreshing snapshot of dance music in the UK in 2019, a back to basics postcard from the underground club scene.

Extended one-sheet attached.
