Rewind: Our 5 Favorite Music Videos of the Last Week
While it’s far too easy to lose ourselves in the deluge of new music releases that grace us every week, one thing that cannot and should not be overlooked is the art of the music video. With the heyday era of MTV long behind us, Rewind sees us taking a look back at a handful of our favorite music videos of the past week.
Evangeline - "Hemoine"
We won’t relinquish our visual favorites and this video by newcomer Evangeline and director Marly Ludwig is full of them: fisheye overhead takes of the jam space, mag-lite police entry hand-held style cams, and the frantic DIY energy of a song that seeks out an enormous amount of emotion between some big riff choruses.
BLK ODYSSY, Bootsy Collins - "Honeysuckle Neckbone"
We’ve all been there... at work, endlessly distracted by a failed romance, its feverish events playing out in your head, the what ifs colliding into an untimely reality. In this beautifully shot, lit, and acted effort by director and DP Joey Hunt, we get the best of a preeminent songwriter with the visual chops to match. Must see knockout vibes here.
Jules Paymer, Miki Ratsula - "The Daughter That My Mother Wanted"
Family, an incubation to our best selves, or a strange organizational force that keeps us confused, captive, and closeted. In this poignantly executed, wonderfully cast video directed and edited by Talia Stewart, Jules Paymer and Miki Ratsula look back on their younger selves, contemplating those torturous moments of feeling incomplete and inadequate. A must listen, watch and reason to be heard.
Casper Sage - "Pseudo"
In a video that mirrors the fuzzy at the edges comfort of being alone, or the slow growth required to find peace in that setting, young storyteller Casper Sage gives a very Frank Ocean feeling and setting to his latest single, one he admits is about trying to feel safe with himself. A hard to process mental hurdle that churns in a series of settings that sees Sage alone, whether it be silhouetted against the moon, a rippling lake, or shirtless in a cold field. An early statement work and a wonderful watch.
Dreamer Isioma - "Gimme A Chance"
In this sparkly, bright, and wonderfully colored culmination of a trilogy of videos concerning Princess Forever, our favorite singer spills a mesmerizing journey of tarot reading over a bad as bad can be bassline and swelling melodic chorus. Too much to plausibly reduce to words in this effort directed by both Dreamer Isioma and Jared Avalos, so give the full effort a chance above.
