Oasis The Shock of Lightning

In support of their new album, Dig Out Your Soul, Oasis has released a music video for their first single, Shock of Lightning. It's Oasis alright, Liam Gallagher's voice is not one to be mistaken and even if it was the rhythmic distorted guitars are spot on the bands trademark sound.

The video is a clip-art collage in the vein of Sgt. Peppers meets You Can't Do that on Television with more than a couple classic rock references. Directed by duo Julian House and Julian Gibbs of by Ghost Box Music, the piece opens on a frame mimicking the Rolling Stones Hot Rocks cover and proceeds to superimpose images of Liam with John Lennon specs throughout the duration of the song. All in all it's pretty trippy and fun to watch.
