10 videos you need in your life this week
Your guide to the videos we can't stop watching. Come in.
FKA twigs – Home with you
In a recent interview with Zane Lowe for Beats 1, FKA twigs said that home with you is MAGDALENE‘s song that she loves to sing the most. In fact, the tune is an ode to the suburbs and arrives accompanied by a video directed by and starring twigs herself, which depicts the artist dancing in a surreal suburban garden. The clip breathes an atmosphere of suggestive spirituality that explains this artist’s statement about the track: “Home with You’ reinforced my reoccurring suspicion that when I’m in doubt, I should follow my gut and go home.“.
Helado Negro – Seen My Aura
The new Helado Negro’s video for Seen My Aura follows a group of kids lounging at the neighborhood pool on summer vacation. The soundtrack is perfect as well as that Wes Anderson-inspired colour palette.
boy pablo – Feeling Lonely
Whenever you want to feel the summer on your skin, you just have listen to the sparkling guitars of this boy pablo’s track. On the other hand, save its video for those rainy days when you just want to stay in bed and drink a cup of hibiscus flower tea.
Raveena – Petal
If Raveena were a dress, it would certainly be one of those long dresses designed by Emilio Pucci and filled with multi-colored prints.
Press play and find out how easy it’s to imagine it.
Jessie Reyez – Far Away
The last scene of this video is the key to understanding what we are forced to do to defend love from violence.
Tananai – Calcutta
This week we hosted Tananai in our Vinilica Vol. 42.
The song Calcutta could be his manifesto because it’s about the aspirations of an “under-the-radar” artist. In the video for the track he stays in his room training in front of a wall that is covered with posters of his idols (from Childish Gambino to Ronaldo, King Krule and, of course, Calcutta). But in the end, we see an unexpected turn of events.
SiR – New Sky
The scenes pull back to reveal the green screen background creating the fantasy world around him.
Aldous Harding – Zoo Eyes
I never thought there could be anything poetic in the fog or low clouds… until this Aldous Harding video arrived.
Ama Lou – NORTHSIDE
The entire visual for NORTHSIDE is self-directed and self-styled: Ama Lou navigates the fashion world wearing a series of outfits that pay tribute to the 90s / early 2000s.
Nilüfer Yanya – H34T RISES
H34t Rises is a rework of the track Heat Rises, which appeared on Yanya’s debut album Miss Universe earlier this year. The latest tune arrives with a video directed by her sister Molly Daniel which shows the escape of Yanya from the dystopian organization WWAY Health.
