VIDEO: The Chemical Brothers’ ‘Wide Awake (feat. Beck)’

The Chemical Brothers

Single ‘Wide Awake’, which features Beck, is taken from The Chemical Brothers‘ eighth studio album Born in the Echoes. The song finally receives a music video from the band’s long-time collaborator, director pair Dom & Nic. The video stars Ex Machina‘s Sonoya Mizuno where she gradually transforms into a porous structure as she dances around in a warehouse. The directors were inspired by procedural cellular structures (and evidently the visual effects in the movie Mizuno starred in), but if you’re one who suffers from trypophobia, it can be a bit difficult to watch. Still, it’s a stunning work of VFX.
