But OK GO ! is a band who, plays alternative American rock but is definitely an "Eyes and Ears" band. Again shown to me by a friend and I was blown away. This was just too cool to pass by, I had to "spread the word". Their music videos are filled with fresh ideas and color and even rhythm. Even the name is so cool and uncomplicated. Coming to think of it, its a simple thing to do - Just go ! (ha ha ha!)
Originally from Chicago, Illinois and now residing in Los Angeles, California The band is composed of Damian Kulash (lead vocals, guitar), Tim Nordwind (bass guitar and vocals), Dan Konopka (drums and percussion) and Andy Ross (guitar, keyboards and vocals), who joined them in 2005, replacing Andy Duncan. They are perhaps best known for their often elaborate and quirky music videos.
The original members formed as OK Go in 1998 and released two studio albums before Duncan's departure. The band's video for "Here It Goes Again" won a Grammy Award for "Best Short-Form Music Video" in 2007.The band has worked with directors including Francis Lawrence, Olivier Gondry (brother of Michel Gondry), Brian L. Perkins, Scott Keiner, and Todd Sullivan.
Some of my favourite videos include :
Here It Goes Again !
This Too Shall Pass
White Knuckles - Psst! (This one is crazy!)
Anyone who watches their videos will just love the energy they have ! This is fun at your workplace redefined.
OK! GO! Wiki Them !
Again I like to end-type with a quote :
"Don't think. Thinking is the enemy of creativity.
It's self-conscious, and anything self-conscious is lousy.
You can't try to do things. You simply must do things."
- Ray Bradbury
