Pearl Lion is the solo project of Jared Schaff. Jared is a guitarist for Saturday Night Live and runs a YouTube channel called Unnecessary Shredding. Pearl Lion’s video for “Alpha4” is one of the most unique music videos I’ve seen. It has a playful blend of animation with live video. Of course, you can expect plenty of fantastic guitar riffs to listen to. Mix the two things together and you get a memorable music video that is able to heavily focus on the visual without taking anything away from the music. It’s a clever approach and (spoiler alert) who doesn’t want to see an animated, drumming octopus? Check out the video below!
