For his new video, “The Bike Song,” Mark Ronson has continued to explore the strange, retro-futuristic, truly global world that he introduced with his charming clip for “Bang Bang Bang.”
Working again with director Warren Fu, Mark Ronson visually mixes cultural references and world cultures (Japanese, French, British) with the same flair he uses when mixing musical genres: with abandon and tons of style.
“The Bike Song,” which features Kyle Falconer and Spank Rock, sees nods to films like “Tron,” movements like the Mod revolution of ’60s London and ’70s European cinema. Over a breezy, sample-delic beat, the song finds Falconer singing about shrugging off the the weight of the world and taking to the road on his beloved cycle.
The real stars of the show are the fabulous hairdos on display, with Spank Rock (the MC for the New York rap duo of the same name) rocking a relaxed blowout and Ronson sporting a platinum blond fade.
It’s another dizzying, fun, visual ride with a great soundtrack. Check out “The Bike Song” video below. The track is featured on Ronson’s upcoming Record Collection album, due out September 28.
