“Happy Up Here” video by Reuben Sutherland

A visually impressive Space Invaders-themed music video directed by Reuben Sutherland of Joyrider Films for Röyksopp’s new single “Happy Up Here.” At first glance, I thought it was a mix of live and CG, but upon closer examination, it appears to be almost entirely CG. It’s a fun piece in which the visual elements and cutting perfectly match the energy of song’s beats.

    There is supposed to be a version of this by a Russian Marching band, or that is where Royksopp made their version from, I cannot locate it anywhere, but any help would be greatly appreciated.

    They have been playing the sample on here: http://www.bbc.co.uk/radio1/chrismoyles/
