The 5 Best New Music Videos Of The Week – Killer Mike, Solange & More

This week saw the release of some fantastic music videos. From Reagan to Super Mario, we’ve got all this week’s best bits in video format. Let us know your thoughts in the comments section below.

Solange – Losing You (Dir. Melina Matsoukas)

Having Beyonce for a sister can hardly be the easiest role in the world. However, here Solange shows us she’s no wallflower fitting in perfectly with the multi-coloured, perfectly tailored members of the vibrant Le Sape Society.

Sky Ferreira – Everything is Embarrassing (Dir. Grant Singer)

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1jtTeMgWNhA

I’m a huge fan of this very simple black and white shot video. With the track’s beautiful synths and loops, anything more than a few pouts and sultry glances would feel like too much.

Killer Mike – Regan (Dir. Daniel Garcia & Harry Teitelman)

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6lIqNjC1RKU

Killer Mike offers up the most politically charged release of the week. The animated video depicts old presidents as finger puppets and highlights some of the recent controversies in U.S. politics.

AlunaGeorge Watching Over You (Dir. Brendan Canty)

I love the bokeh-blended cartoons and nintendo cosmos in this one. A great set of visuals that perfectly compliment George’s bouncy 8-bit production and Aluna’s ethereal vocals.

Miguel – The Thrill (Dir. Constellation Jones)

Miguel parties with his friends in the kind of video you might expect from A$AP Rocky if he wasn’t so into self-produced visuals with symbolic coke shapes and fat booties.
