Be prepared to dance until you see the Setting Sun in this music video from RedTails. The self described future pop band bombards the viewer with some absolutely insane visuals, including the impressive costume of lead singer Colette Francis-Lee. The video cuts between the band’s performance and a seemingly unrelated woman in a room. Throughout the rest of the track the woman undergoes a few gnarly transformations as she repeatedly counts down to the refrain of the song. Sounds pretty simple, but the inventive visual tricks employed make this surprisingly intricate music video.
RedTails has already gained an impressive amount of acclaim for critics like BBC and Electric Harmony. “Something Fresh & Different,” “Energetic, hook laden, magic carpet ride” and “The sound of your new favorite band” are just a few of enthusiastic reviews for this new band. Don’t be left behind; watch the video for yourself and find out what all the fuss is about.
