Yes, yes, I know that Ode To Sleep is quite the old treat from Ohio’s Twenty One Pilots, but the genre bending hip hop/alt rock/electronic and everything in between duo released a special video for the song today. And I must say, it’s quite the compelling watch, from a band that may have been the most intriguing live act I caught in 2014. They’re absolutely captivating, with their energy and a rambunctious sound that belies their two person roster. The new clip is a documentary slash music video. It basically tells, in a nutshell, their journey from playing tiny basement shows to huge venues. They crafted the live footage video out of several years of shows, beginning with the very first one Twenty One Pilots ever played. Pretty cool, if you ask me. The song Ode To Sleep, in itself, is a mesmerizing track, encapsulating the band’s unique and passionate blend of electronic, hip hop, and alt.
