This is a pretty neat idea. Maniac, a relatively new project from ex-The Matches leader Shawn Harris and Jake Grigg of Something With Numbers fame, have launched a new website to showcase their debut four track EP.
Simply put, it’s a single music video for four different songs.
Users can toggle between tracks mid-video; it never stops, while the music “imposes visual order on what would otherwise be chaos”. Apparently the band “wanted to make a new creative way to stream our EP: a music video responsive to the viewers’ whims”.
It’s a cool idea, and the music itself is darn catchy. Check out the Maniac EPV at www.maniacmania.com.
