Listen to Your Art

On Tuesday, we showed you our favorite fashion-meets-art ensembles, so today, we’re featuring its arty musical equivalent! For its latest music video, French-American band Hold Your Horses! cheekily recreated famous paintings, with hilarious results.

(If you’re having trouble identifying some of the paintings, Flavorwire has listed out the video’s real-life counterparts.)

    Cool video. They sound to me like a combination of Modest Mouse and The Shins.

    i’m obsessed. as a huge art history dork this makes me more than happy. cute indy music and popular art need to make more crossovers. I almost want a more surrealist sequel with some Dali stuff? or wouldn’t it be ridiculous if they tried to make a pollack?!?? wow. i’m lame… :-)

    What a cute video, and a fun way to discover a new band. It kind of reminds me of the ‘Hot Chip – Boy from School’ video. Not too sure why, making a picture of the band I guess.

    What an awesome and clever video! I love art history, so I consequently had a lot of fun naming all of the artworks as they came up. Thanks for posting this!
