Director/Photographer Danny Clinch isn't the only one with a role in this short film. Interviewers include Judd Apatow, Portlandia star and fellow musician Carrie Brownstein, pro surfer Mark Richards, and Steve Gleason, an NFL player living with ALS. An unlikely group, but they get the band to open up more than you might expect, and Clinch gets very close, thanks to his longterm association with the band.
The past 18 months have been nothing short of a whirlwind for Icelandic band Of Monsters and Men. This tour video serves as a quick restrospective of that time touring the world, appropriately soundtracked by their album and show closing anthem, "Yellow Light."
Director David Gallardo was there, from their first US show at a tiny Austin bike shop during SXSW 2012, all the way to some of the biggest festival stages in the world.

Methinks Pearl Jam has tired of being called "notoriously video shy." "Sirens" is the second video to precede new album Lightning Bolt and it's bascially a beautifully shot performance — that I would make an educated guess also has live audio — of the band in their stage set-up.
Nickelodeon star Ariana Grande is well on her way to making a legit pop-star crossover, thanks to a song that hits you like the girl re-write of Bieber's "Baby" and a soaring voice that's in the zone of Mariah Carey. Director Ryan Pallotta engineers an all-day and crosstown dance party that takes Ariana and her crew into the night.
PS: Does the styling count as '80s retro/ironic if the singer was born in 1993?
Any Pearl Jam video is an event for the simple reason they made one of the greatest videos of their generation — Mark Pellington's masterful and never to be imitated "Jeremy" — and then basically walked away from the medium.
