The Best Animated Indie Rock Music Videos

If you’re looking for the best animated indie rock music videos, you’ve come to the right place. In this article, we’ll be discussing the top 10 animated indie rock music videos of all time. These videos are not only great examples of animation, but they also showcase some of the best indie rock music out there.

“Falling” by Holograms

Holograms are a Swedish post-punk band that formed in 2010. Their song “Falling” was released as a single in 2012, and the accompanying music video was animated by Swedish artist Erik Berglin.

The video follows a group of friends as they go about their everyday lives, with each scene representing a different phase of life. The first scene shows the friends as children, playing together in a park. The second scene depicts the friends as teenagers, hanging out together and talking about their dreams for the future. The third scene shows the friends as adults, working hard to make their dreams come true. Finally, the fourth scene shows the friends as old men, looking back on their lives and reminiscing about all they’ve accomplished together.

The “Falling” music video is a heartwarming and bittersweet look at friendship, and how even though life changes and people move on, the bonds we form with our friends can last a lifetime.

“The Mother We Share” by CHVRCHES

The “The Mother We Share” video was produced by Japanese animator Hayato Kotaki. It features a unique blend of traditional and digital animation, with a colorful and cartoony look. The video tells the story of a mother and daughter who are separated by an ocean, but find a way to connect through music.

“The Mother We Share” is a catchy, upbeat song with a positive message, and the video perfectly captures the spirit of the song. It’s a fun, festive video that will put a smile on your face.

If you’re a fan of CHVRCHES or Hayato Kotaki’s work, “The Mother We Share” is definitely worth checking out.
