Song: The Island – Part 1 Dawn
Genre: Drum and Bass
Year Released: 2010
Pendulum’s “The Island – Part 1 Dawn” is a concept music video with elements of performance featuring the lead vocalist.
The first few shots in this music video combine to make a sequence of establishing shots. This allows audience to view the setting of the remote location featured in the video. As well as this how the video has been edited makes it look like it is a short film this is done by setting the scene and also by the white text fading in on screen. Many other bands have done this concept for a music video but normally in a trailer format two examples of this is Muse’s “Knights of Cydonia” and My Chemical Romance’s “I’m Not Okay (I Promise)”.
