Skrillex – First of the year
Electronic music videos are always ‘different’ and this is certainly the case for the video of ‘First of the year’ by Skrillex. On a musical note, it’s your textbook Skrillex stuff, big bass, wobbles and screeching noises.
However, the video gives a completely new take on the song and the narrative is based on a paedophile who stalks his ‘victim’. Or so we think. The young girl is followed to a basement, turns around and in time with the wobbles, manages to become the predator and attack him with a bizarre force of bass. It has to be seen to be believed. This ends with the girl scratching off a tally, suggesting more paedophiles have been killed by her. It’s quite eerie but very clever. Check it out!
