Music videos are a creative way to enhance the power of a song. Over the past few years I have seen a decline in the artistic creativity of music videos, almost all of which have become simply performance videos. However, as of late there are 5 videos I must highlight because they are simply amazing and enjoyable!
5. Of Monsters & Men-Little Talks
This Icelandic band appears to be one of the breakout stars of this year. Bringing us this sweet folky duet and extremely visually stimulating music video! Enjoy :)
4. Gotye (feat. Kimbra)-Somebody That I Used To Know
This Belgian Australian indie rocker is enjoying his 8th consecutive week at # 1 with this hit single!
3. Grouplove-Tongue Tied
This LA group met at an artist commune on the island of Crete and are now gaining major success!
2. The Black Keys-Lonely Boy
The story behind this video is Dan & Pat had an entire video planned out for them to be in as well but once they saw the moves this actor had they scratched the og idea and went in a more hilarious direction! I’m pretty sure Jagger got his moves from this guy ;)
1. The Limousines-The Future
My favorite track off of their ‘Get Sharp’ record, local duo The Limousines give you a dark and haunting back to the future-esque video that makes you think and feel…This is one of the most creative and well made videos I’ve ever seen. Hats off to The Limousines and David Dutton.
