I meant to discuss this music video a month ago, but well, I’m a slow one.

I adore the premise of this video. The colours, the wardrobe, the choreography, it fits together like peas in a pod. Highlights include an under the table party, table top dancing and matching outfits. Although there is one sketchy 15 second scene where the band is just standing around, but one of them has a guitar, and no one else has an instrument. Aside from that random scene, a fun music video, complete with a wink!

Premise: 10/10

“Cinematography”: 9/10
Costumes: 5/5
Music Itself: 5/5
Total: 45/50


TOTW: Week of May 5

1. Wintersleep – Miasmal Smoke & The Yellow Bellied Freaks
These guys are really growing on me. This is what I would call an epic track. It has a great slow build, a gorgeous climax and is the perfect way to end an album.

2. The Good Life – I Am An Island
My favourite lyrical genius had this song featured on Cold Case last night. Go Saddle Creek!

3. Destroyer – The State
Dan Bejar is slowly taking over Radio 3, and I’m ok with that.

4. The New Pornographers – Mutiny, I Promise You
Ok and he’s taking over this list too. This is a great infectious song, I particularly enjoy the rhythms in this one.

5. Creature – Pop Culture
This song is just fun. Every time I hear it, I just wanna get up and dance!
