Six of the best New Zealand music videos
As we plan the production of Dihex, we’re reflecting on our top New Zealand music videos. We chose two each because it’s tough to pick a favourite.
Jakob - Safety in Numbers (2006)
I clearly remember seeing this on late-night television and being lulled by the beautiful showcase of the Southern Alps; riveted at 2:22. Such a great execution, well-before the GoPro and drone phenomenon. -Mathew
Dimmer - I Believe You Are a Star (2001)
Unfortunately, the only available upload is in 240p which does a disservice to the tones of this atmospheric, dark comedic production. -Mathew
Goodshirt - Blowing Dirt (2001)
I really enjoyed this video on a technical point of view. At the time of release, it blew my mind trying to think of how much time went into planning it and not fucking it up! Like how many cars do you get to destroy for a music video? And do it backwards! Anyway, great song too. These guys always looked like they were having fun when doing videos. -Brendon
The Mint Chicks - Crazy? Yes! Dumb? No! (2006)
This video is simple but I really like the setting the band is filmed in; long grass with lights. Really effective. -Brendon
Shihad - You Again (1995)
It’s 1st May 2005. I’m fresh out of high school by a couple of months, managing a burger joint in Glenfield. Friends of mine drag me to this free gig in town. That’s where I found my inspiration. -Jester
New Way Home - Tides (2013)
The song itself is huge, spacious, lush. I like this video because it shows the New Way Home lads in a different light; I guess a reprieve from there usual heavy-hitting style. The video is simple; it allows the viewer to take a moment to step back, only to be punched from the breakdown onward. Cool video, great song. -Jester
