We all know that Odd Future member, Frank Ocean's music is as much visually stimulating as aurally, when it comes to his music videos. So when he released the official video for 'Pyramids', track 10 off his latest album Channel Orange (released in July) a few hours ago, following the likes of 'Swim Good' , 'Novacane' and 'Acura Integurl' visuals found on his Vimeo channel here we expected no less than this visually stunning work of art.
I feel not only that Frank Ocean's music is changing perceptions of music, I don't even class his music as hip hop, not this album anyway, he has created a whole new level of music which I think deserves a category of its own... also reflected in the visuals. In this song we are transported into a different world, a glimpse into Frank's imagination, not to mention also featured is a mesmerising guitar solo by John Mayer towards the end.. this video is beautiful and the camera work and effects make this one of the best music videos i've seen all year. Check it out below.
