Shintaro Sakamoto, "You Just Decided"

  • Japanese psych-rock legend animates own video for solo track

  • Tags:

    If you follow Japanese pop music history, which we don't, then you'd know Shintaro Sakamoto as the former frontman of psych-rock legends Yura Yura Teikoku. Recently, we learned from the Twitter of ex-Girls leadman Christopher Owens that Sakamoto has reinvented himself as a solo artist and, judging from the amazingness of this self-made video, a very talented animator. With some sweet-as-honey stabs of smooth sax, "You Just Decided" is a soulful slice of psych-pop. Sakamoto's video is a mindbending piece of hand-drawn animation, with the stark black-on-white drawings morphing endlessly into each other. It's utter nonsense, and totally absorbing.
