This one-take video revolves around Metronomy as they play in a quirky studio-come-car-come-concert hall contraption thingy. Props for the chinos and matching burgundy blazers.

2. OK Go - "The Writing's on the Wall"

View this video on YouTube

Another one-take wonder, this time from OK Go. The song and the video are a play on perspective, and this one is so full of brilliant trickery that you'll want to watch it once, twice, and then three times for good measure.

Directors: Aaron Duffy, Damian Kulash, Jr. & Bob Partington

3. Tame Impala - "Feels Like We Only Go Backwards"

Directed and designed by Becky Sloan & Joseph Pelling, this masterpiece from Australian band Tame Impala was made from over 1,000 plasticine collages, all individually made by hand. You can actually even buy the plasticine pieces online here, if you so fancy.

Directors: Becky and Joe

This glorious piece by British singer FKA Twigs features the artist herself as some kind of gold-covered goddess, flanked by a coterie of shining banshee dancers. It's amazing, and completely transfixing.

Director: Nabil

6. Flume - "Insane"

This dark, brooding video from Australian electronic artist, Flume, and Australian director, Angus Forbes, is further proof that Aussie creatives are at the top of their game. If you liked Drive, you will love this.

An animated love story between a woman and a rabbit, taking place across a variety of iPhone, iPad, and MacBook screens. This is cute and clever work from Ukrainian band Brunettes Shoot Blondes.

A tribute to '90s music, in all of its neon glory. This video from New Zealand-born Kimbra is one of the wildest, most surreal videos to be released this year. You're going to want to wear your sunglasses.
