Unforgettable Oasis Masterwork
29 May 2017 | by Rodrigo_AmaroSee all my reviews

It's that iconic image of Liam Gallagher singing to the camera, black-and-white close-up that at times seems to be filmed in an super stylized slow motion is the defining power image of this music video. It's just something you don't forget. Oasis in its glorious "Definitely Maybe" moments, great rock n'roll sound of the 1990's and they always had some of their greatest clips of the period and of all time. The idea of it doesn't fly with imagination or creativity but it manages to sell the music and the band. It's simply a band performing "Supersonic", one of their most hardest potent sounds, on top of a building rooftop with some intercut between an airplane constantly flying by (never on the same shot though), or a subway train, or a puddle of water, quite random.

The big deal obviously is the song, Oasis at the top of their game. But the images stay with me. Most of it shot in black-and-white with some colored images, but the use of such colors is so controlled and somber that they almost feel invisible - it reminded me of those clips by The Smiths, we never see the band and the colors were always limited, foggy. Great editing on both cases. And we all know most groups hate doing videos, specially appearing on them but Oasis act was strong, Noel and the bad boy vibes while detonating sound structures with his guitar while Liam manages to be a little playful in between sequences.

Outside of the realm of magnificent super-budget videos, "Supersonic" achieves greatness with its simplicity. Here's a video that always deserves some revisit now and then. Truly supersonic. 9/10 Beatles reference: Band performing on a rooftop and lyrics mentioning Yellow Submarine.
