Look how perfectly music and animation make magic

Yesterday saw the announcement of a whole host of acts for the Electric Picnic festival and being a studio of music lovers it naturally got us thinking about our favourite animated music videos. 

We tried to limit our choices to only acts that had been announced but quickly realised that with the vast array of music videos out there we'd have to expand past the lineup because there are just so many awesome options to pick from. 

We all know that it's good to share so we wanted to show you some of our choices, there's a mix of Electric Picnic acts and some studio favourites here so we hope you like some of them grin
