Fri, 26 Feb 2016 13:53:56
February is steadily coming to a close and South by Southwest is just around the corner, but that hasn't stopped the steady stream of eye-catching music videos from hitting screens worldwide. Santigold got interactive with "Can't Get Enough of Myself." Elle Goulding showed us what it's like to see her live with "Something In The Way You Move." Chvrches debuted their video for "Clearest Blue."
It wasn't just big names keeping our eyes fixated on the screen either. Cub Sport showed us the life of a self-destructive starlet on and off the camera via "I Can't Save You." Gold Panda took a look at regular life in "Time Eater." Junior Boys juxtaposed black and white with bursts of color in "Big Black Coat." And that was just the beginning for a week that saw some of the year's biggest videos be premiered.
Check out our favorites below:
Rihanna - "Work" [ft. Drake] - Anti - Directed by Director X and Tim Erem - Westbury Road, Roc Nation
Rihanna dressed in a Tommy Hilfiger net dress and Drake looked super comfy with her pressed up against him, in the Barbadian singer's newest steamy video. As to be expected, there's even some light nudity.
Massive Attack - "Voodoo in My Blood" [ft. Young Fathers] - Ritual Spirit - Directed by Ringan Ledwidge - Virgin Records
Massive Attack has been casting major stars in their 2016 music videos. First it was John Hawkes in "Take It There" [ft. Tricky and 3D], this time Rosamund Pike found herself under the control of an evil floating orb.
Daughter - "How" - Not to Disappear - Directed by Lain Forsyth and Jane Pollard - 4AD
All three of Daughter's music videos from there most recent album, Not to Disappear, were written by Stuart Evers. In "How," a young woman finally gets the courage to leave her home and finds herself in a surreal moments on the beach. It's beautiful, haunting, and mesmerizing.
