Meet The Man Behind The Klaxons' Videos





While doing some web surfing over the recent oddly placed holiday, we stumbled upon an interesting interview with up-and-coming video director Saam. Chances are you've seen his work, especially if you've ever watched that amusing mash-up of Bush and Blair singing Electric Six's "Gay Bar," or perhaps the hilarious "Viral Insanity" with Jamiroquai dancing in the men's room.


There is much more to his work than those two clips, as he is also the creative mind behind the Klaxons' music videos. He chats about his ideas for the videos, such as the green fluid squirting weirdness of "Magick." He was asked how the band reacted to the idea behind that video, to which he answered: "I told everyone - not just the members, but their manager and my manager - all at the same time, they opened their eyes widely and nobody spoke for a long time... But I have always been lucky because they have always trusted me completely and given me complete control over everything. Styling, design, story, everything. They sometimes ask some questions, but often I think they like to not know. They like the surprise!"
