In a week that saw some huge releases all I can think about is that damn Harlem Shake. Who knows, maybe OK Go will feature it in their next video. ‘Til then enjoy this and maybe take a look at our best videos of the week when you’re done.
Wild Nothing – Only Heather (Dir. Ryan Reichenfeld)
Fewer things excite me more than a new Wild Nothing video. However I’d be lying if I said I wasn’t slightly sceptical about Jack Tatum releasing music videos for his ‘Nocturne’ singles. That album was a huge standout for me last year and I was sure the visuals would be unable to do the audio justice. This video along with ‘Paradise‘ released last year, prove I was wrong, very wrong.
Passion Pit – Carried Away (Dir. Ben Brewer & Alex Brewer)
Michael is proving once again he can hold his own against established actors, this time in the form of the lovely Sophia Bush of One Tree Hill fame. This video is smart, funny and painfully accurate in detailing the ups and downs of every (dysfunctional) relationship.
Tyler, The Creator – Domo 23 (Dir. Wolf Haley)
Yet another ridiculous/funny-as-fuck video from the Odd Future frontman. This time Tyler channels his inner Hulk Hogan whilst Earl and Domo play referee and arch rival respectively.
Justin Timberlake Feat. Jay-Z – Suit & Tie (Dir. David Fincher)
With the first single from his upcoming album The 20/20 Experience, JT gives us a glimpse into the world of the rich and famous, namely hanging out with Hova, sipping whiskey and dancing in dapper, old-school tuxes.
MØ – Glass (Dir. Casper Balslev)
Yet another reason to appreciate the recent emmergence of Scandinavian pop. Karen Marie Ørsted gives her MØ project serious credibility with this dark and gloomy piece of Nordic videography.
