Artists Style & Image

For my final music video I have decided to recreate Muse's Panic Station. With this I am going to explain their style and how it effects their public image.

Muse are an English rock band, originating from Devon formed in 1994. The band consists of Matthew Bellamy, Christopher Wolstenholme and Dominic Howard. They are known mainly from their over the top and exaggerated live performances.

Currently Muse have six albums, and a seventh one releasing this year. They have released 4 live albums and are consistently creating soundtrack for film. One of their most recent film soundtracks was for World War Z with the song Panic Station.

As a band their style constantly changes, after 6 albums they have covered music genres ranging from rock, electronica, dub step, funk, film scores and space rock. They are very flexible with their music style and as a result have gained a huge fan base, ranging from older men and women and younger generations.

In terms of Muses look, they don't really fit their alternative rock genre, they normally are seen wearing smart/casual attire which shows they don't really think they need to dress differently depending on their music. This is probably due to the fact that they are confident that their music is enough to sell their image to the right audience, rather than having to put on a false facade to attract more publicity.

In particular, their music video Panic Station is extremely random and entertaining. The costumes and colours that are present in this video show how they are not orientated by their music image and they really are secure when it comes to their style. It also reflects their attitude towards their music, this album specifically.
