The Scoop: Houston-based alternative pop-rockers, Otenki, are less than a week away from the release of their The War Outside re-issue, set to drop on January 28th. Today the band has teamed up with ArtistDirect for the exclusive world premiere of their action-packed music video, “Kinetic”. Complete with motorcycle racing, fight scenes and damsels in distress, the video feels like a box-office blockbuster flick. Check out the OC Films-produced creation on ArtistDirect below.
The Spin: The band said of the music video:
“The video is really us trying to say ‘Fight for what you love. Don’t let anyone take it away from you.’ The concept centers around our vocalist German and our heroine Leslie being attacked by a group who means to assimilate everyone. They kidnap Leslie and we have to get her back. Filming the video was a blast. We worked with OC Films and the director Cris Rodriguez was amazing. He (along with our art director Robert Gouner) was able to really bring German’s vision of the video to life. What made it special was that all the actors you see are just our friends, fans and an organization called the Houston Zombie Walk. We’ve always wanted to build a sense of community with our band and this video was a great opportunity to do that.”
