Thank you ONIONSKIN - never has watching an animated city being built looked so satisfying

Posted by Liv Siddall,

Japanese animation team ONIONSKIN have somehow harnessed the delicious satisfaction you feel in successfully launching a scrunched up piece of paper into a bin from a distance and converted it into animated form. In this very sweet and unassuming short, ONIONSKIN manage to sync the rhythm of the song to the movements of the Sim City-like scene to absolute perfection. It’s not often you see a track with a music video that so perfectly fits the tone, but this one does. Perhaps that’s also down to the track being a music video creators dream. Doit Science, the band responsible describe it as “repeatedly complete imperfect Texture and too much Chorus.” Um, okay!
