Coldplay Turn The World On Its Ear And Band Of Horses Throw A House Party In The Top Music Videos Of The Week - May 14-20

When it comes to finding the top music videos of the week, sometimes there's just not enough space on the list. This is one of those weeks. Getting "High All Day" with Popcaan seem like a relaxed, almost dreamlike experience. The video for Justin Timberlake's "Can't Stop The Feeling," reminds us of just how infectious JT can be. On the other hand, it seem like it would be pretty "Dope" to be T.I., with all of the beautiful women, vast, window-filled rooms, and high-end clubs he hangs out in in his newest video. And Banks & Steelz take us into the strange, surprisingly dance-filled world of Asian gangsters in the video for "Love + War" [ft. Ghostface Killah].
It wasn't just the big names putting out stunning eye candy. Singing karaoke with Japanese Breakfast would certainly put us "In Heaven." Spaghetti and eyeliner cover the faces of Hinds in their video for "Easy." And Yaysayer's claymation video for "Silly Me" is simply a stunning visual experience. And that was only the beginning for a week filled with mind-bending music videos.
Here are our favorites:
Coldplay - "Up&Up" - Directed by Vania Heymann and Gal Muggia
Coldplay's video for "Up&Up" is a visual masterpiece. Skies turn to seas, seas turn to skies, and the entirety of planet earth gets flipped on its head and turned into a playground. No matter your feelings on the band, the video is spectacular.
The Last Shadow Puppets - "Miracle Aligner" - Directed by Saam Farahmand
There's always been something electric about Alex Turner and Miles Kane's relationship. The video for "Miracle Aligner" finds the duo closer than ever, dancing and sharing a ball room. It's a bit odd, but all more the reason to enjoy. We caught up with The Last Shadow Puppets to discuss "Everything You've Come to Expect."
Nite Jewel - "Kiss The Screen" - Directed by Delaney Bishop
Unrequited love is a common theme in music. Nite Jewel's video for "Kiss the Screen" explores the trope in a fascinating and bizarre manner. ARTISTdirect caught up with Nite Jewel to discuss her soon-to-be-released record.
Band Of Horses - "Casual Party"
The friendly confines of Band of Horses' house-party video for "Casual Party" is filled with strange, and fascinating creatures, including someone covered in cheese and coldcuts. It seems like an awesome place to hangout, even if most of the normal looking individuals are tied up.
Ariana Grande - "Let Me Love You" [ft. Lil Wayne]
See the video on apple music.
Ariana Grande's video for "Let Me Love You"[ft. Lil Wayne] make us feel like the Divinyls' biggest hit in the best possible way. There's no denying how foxy Grande is and the song will hook you right away.
