If anyone knows about making artistic statements with music videos, it’s the Ghanaian collective, La Même Gang. Usually, many artists are aware music videos asides being marketing tools for promoting albums and singles, can also be impressive works of arts in their own right as a vehicle for making an artistic statement.
La Meme Gang’s latest video release is for “GODZILLA” off their collaborative project, La Même Tape. Their shenanigans capture the hallmark of suburban adolescence propped with party vibes and artistic frame filters. And while points could be deducted for the tame number of ravers in the video, there’s a warm, almost affectionate ‘gang’ authenticity about their small circle.
Each La Même Gang member is seen in a photo booth surrounded by cool party decors; Nxwrth hides behind a mask, $pacely is washed in lights with a neon chain around his neck, RJZ talks into a classic gold-plated telephone, Darkovibes carries balloons and a Polaroid camera while Kiddblack poses behind an array of magazines. The fanciful visuals for “GODZILLA” is a fun amalgamation of short clips that support the generally upbeat nature of the song.
