“Gonna ride my bike until I get home…”
Bloody Mark Ronson. Honestly, how cool can one dude be? From his brilliant covers album to his defining role in the sound of Amy Winehouse, Ronson has been a staple of pop over the last few years, bringing the funk, the horns and the general stench of awesome. Lately, in the lead up to his new album Record Collection, he’s also been bringing the awesome videos. The first was Bang Bang Bang, which has the double whammy of being both one of the best songs of the year and one of the best videos – I mean, come on! Flying saucers! Kids dancing! Q-Tip! How could you go wrong?
The video for new single The Bike Song literally picks up where the last one left off. Ronson, staring on some kind of weird Japanese TV show in which the host speaks French, leaves the studio and activates this amazing custom bike with a giant speaker where the carry-basket usually is. The adventure unfolds from there, as the vocal reigns are taken by Kyle Falconer, best known as the dude with the almost incomprehensible Scottish accent who sings in The View – no, not the Whoopi Goldberg yak-yak-yak show, we’re talking Same Jeans and shit like that. Anyway, don’t want to give too much away, enjoy!
