Music Monday: Randa ‘Rangers’

I really didn’t know what to make of this video when I first saw it – the levels of irony and 90s references were too much even for me to take in all at once. But after a couple of views I realised all that mattered was it made me smile.

Hailing from the shores of New Zealand, Larz Randa is as fresh-faced as they come in the rap world, his songs littered with 90s pop-culture and chirpy beats. The mixture of animation and live action in the video illustrates exactly this and was directed and animated by Rob Wallace, AKA Parallel Teeth – who has a great portfolio of work, including the beautiful identity for Visions Festival.
