LITHUANIA – Following Lithuanian record-breaking and globally widely streamed hit “Discoteque”, “The Roop” band releases a new song and video – “Ohmygodable”. The interesting part is that on the YOUTUBE title, the mention EUROVISION 2022 exists sparking a rumour mill about the band’s participation in the Lithuanian selection.
With their new work, the band invites everyone not to stop playing, discovering, and at the same time to glance differently at life, art and yourself.
Playfulness is all throughout the “Ohmygodable” music video, directed by Saulius Baradinskas who earlier created the video for the globally acknowledged “Discoteque”.
According to S. Baradinskas, the visualisation for the new song “Ohmygodable” was inspired by a Greek myth of Pygmalion, who fell in love with a sculpture he had carved.
“I think that the myth of Pygmalion is particularly relevant today, because we live in the age of social networks, within which we create our own social network “sculptures”, wishing to be liked, accepted and significant. It is human. Probably every one of us has a bit of Pygmalion’s characteristics, – tells S. Baradinskas. – The whole music video is like a separate myth of a divine dream that occurs in the world of famous works of art. I wish that in this music video of ours the viewer discovers those art pieces and experiences our myth, like a single beautiful dream, together. The name of the song is a new, rarely encounterable word, defining a person or a phenomenon if you see which you would say: “Oh My God”! In this clip the viewer wanders through world-famous artworks which are interpreted in a contemporary context. I believe the music video really turned out ohmygodable”, – says V. Valiukevičius.
Everything was filmed using the “one take” technique – a single camera shot, and then augmented by an animation created by “Meinart Animation Studio”.
