Northern Irish rock band The Divine Comedy released this animated music video for their tracks Infernal Machines and You’ll Never Work In This Town Again.

We’ve never heard of a double music video before, but the idea really works. The band switch up the animation when the track changes in a seamless way, making each song feel both connected and distinct. The first half looks like a mix between a Soviet propaganda film and Pink Floyd’s Another Brick In The Wall. The heavy, brutalist music playing in the background backs up these themes perfectly.

The second half is a cheerier affair and uses animated art styles from the 1960s. But it still has a dark element to it as well, as behind the glossy visuals is a sinister message about the negatives of consumerism and the stresses of the modern age. Both videos are a comment of the downsides of fast-paced capitalism. The band have an incredible approach to creating music videos and give us something completely unique with this vid.
