Los Paranoias - Algo
A sweet little ditty by Caracas indie band Los Paranoias, Venezuela's answer to Britpop.
The band are Luis Iran (vocals, guitar), Carlos da Palma (bass and backup vocals) Yunior Lobo (drums) and Ivan Gozon (guitar).
"Algo" comes from their 2006 album "Hey! Donde Estan Los Paranoias?" and this excellent video clip - directed by Luber Mujica for Guayoyo Motion Graphics - has been on heavy rotation on MTV Latino since June.
Luber and his team must have got up early to shoot these deserted street scenes outside the Congress building, El Capitolio, and around the Teresa Carreno theatre complex in Caracas.
The result is a beautiful series of snapshots of the capital without the crush of humanity and cars that clog its main arteries during the day.
