10 videos you need in your life this week
Your guide to the videos we can't stop watching. Come in.
Billie Eilish – all the good girls go to hell
For this vid, Bille takes the form of a fallen angel who turns in a bat. We immediately feel that this is not a simple music video: the artist uses this clip directed by Rich-Lee to bring attention to the climate crisis as well as the upcoming Global Climate Strike.
Grimes – Violence
The video begins with Grimes reading Sun Tzu’s The Art of War in a kind of temple full of violent and ethereal dancers and as we watch it we realize that Grimes is our new Xena.
Frankie Cosmos – 41st
Close it Quietly by Frankie Cosmos is out now and this video for 41st reminds me that I am 30 years old and I still can’t jump rope.
Post Malone – Circles
Speaking of albums released today there is also Hollywood’s Bleeding by Post Malone in which you can find some heavy featuring.
For this video he has chosen a setting in perfect Game of Thrones aesthetic: the clip starts on a bloody battlefield, and Malone plays a surviving soldier who wanders between dead bodies until he meets a Rapunzel-like woman who is trapped at the top of a tree.
M83 – Temple Of Sorrow
The French duo released the first single from their forthcoming album DSVII. The sci-fi music video that accompanies Temple of Sorrow is the first part of a short film entitled Extazus created by director Bertrand Mandico and inspired by the tracks on the album. It’s best seen rather than described.
SASAMI – Take Care
Embrace your destructive side like
Blood Orange – Dark & Handsome (Colors Show)
If you close your eyes you can even smell those flowers.
Lana Del Rey – Doin’ Time
Lana Del Rey takes the form of a giant King Kong, stomping around the streets of Los Angeles. In another scene we understand that she is the main character of a film that some people are watching in a 50s-inspired drive in. Then what we were waiting for happens: Lana looks into the camera and comes out of the screen the room, scaring them all but a girl…
A$AP Rocky – Babushka Boi
A$AP Rocky has delivered the music video for his first post-arrest single Babushka Boi. The dystopian visual is probably a deliberate reference to Rocky’s recent run-in with the law and features a crew of bank robbers dressed in 50s style.
Celeste – Strange
