I Wont Let You Down by OK Go

“I Won’t Let You Down” – This song is somewhat of a departure from the original sound of the band; honestly, the entire 4th album is a step in a different direction musically. Upon first listen of this song, it sounds like something you might hear in the late 70’s early 80’s. The band stated that they came up with the influence of the song after playing with the beat and hitting a sound that reminded them of the Jackson 5 and Diana Ross. I have to admit, this album is probably my favorite album that the band has put out. I love the transition to the new sound and their willingness to try something different. Also, Damien’s voice really does fit this sound perfectly. Again, the band doesn’t disappoint with their music video. It was filmed in one continuous shot and finds the band utilizing a really cool mobility device (Honda UNI-Cubs) that I really want to get my hands on. It took 4 days, 44 different takes and 2,300 dancers, in order to complete the video. The last 70 seconds of the official video doesn’t have any music to it, but it shows a nice shot across some Japanese Landscape. Enjoy!
