After 20 solid years of promoting music videos, many of our videos have skyrocketed to the top. Today, we present you with one of our most-watched videos on our Youtube channel: Bigelf’s video for “Money, It’s Pure Evil!”
Summer is always the perfect season for beach trips and blockbusters… and exciting clips for your favorite hard rock bands! Bigelf are a pop-prog-Seventies metal-anthemic rock quarter that sounds like a fireworks display, and after building a fanbase in Europe, the Los Angeles act soon blew up Stateside: Alicia Keys even praised them in O Magazine. “Money, It’s Pure Evil” from their Cheat The Gallows album is flashy, sure – but with instrumental skill and virtuosity to match.
Director David Yarovesky created a video for “Money, It’s Pure Evil” that’s every bit as art as you’d expect. Two attractive young girls roll through the desert in a convertible, but once they reach Hollywood, it’s Bigelf frontman Damon Fox who cajoles them so sign a record contract. There’s plenty of dark magic and mysticism that’s hinted at, and the cinematography and effects feel ever-so-slightly destabilizing.
Now, the Bigelf “Money, It’s Pure Evil” video has reached over 234k views on YouTube! Watch it for yourself below.
