Australian musical Lothario Donny Benét just released a music video for the title track of his new album, Don’t Hold Back. Perhaps only poetry could express the majesty of this music video. The music itself is reminiscent of Rick James mixed with the Eurythmics. The video, directed by Spod, starts out with a silver plane flying through the clouds. The rest of the video is characterized by disco music, jazz bass, white suits all topped with maybe the best use of green screen and high-contrast video filters ever conceived by man.
According to Benét’s Facebook page, his goal with Don’t Hold Back is to “create an album that will hopefully make him the most famous disco accordion/jazz bassist of the 21st century.” We think he has a real shot at that title. The album, out now, comes with a bonus karaoke DVD, but the silver lamé jacket is sold separately.
