Tashaki Miyaki – Get It Right
Directed by Juan Iglesias
The song is taken from the self-titled EP by Tashaki Miyaki, available on 12″ and Download from The Sounds Of Sweet Nothing label’s bandcamp.

Juan Iglesias’ inspiration for the video is thus:
“East meets West. With its wild horses and vast landscapes, this video plays tribute to the American West while at the same time drawing inspiration from minimalistic Japanese imagery.”
