VISUAL OF THE MONTH
TRKRNR is a project by two artists Saul Vallens and Gyrefunk. I remember when SoundCloud suggested to me these guys because I think I have liked Gyrefunk song before. He appeared on one of my favorite tunes Um Dia by Mars Today. So I found them on Bandcamp, where if you want as an artist, you can add a video clip to your song. Since the song was really amazing I gave it a try and it instantly became my favorite video of the month. Colors, interior, people, dance, everything in it was just so eye-pleasing. So here it is for you to enjoy.
INSPIRING AND MOTIVATING
