Best Music Videos of 2019: Narrative

Promonews - 30th Dec 2019

Our second playlist in our round-up of the best videos of 2019, covers non-comedic narrative work, the backbone of so many music videos. And this has been another exceptional year for narrative.

From Aisultan Seitov's dissection of the African-American experience for 21 Savage to Sil and Jorik's latest epic for Novo Amor, chronicling the decline of indigenous people in the face of climate change, to Slowthai's railing against the British establishment, these videos have dealt with serious issues in very engaging ways. 

There has been emotional drama, clever narrative devices and just good old-fashioned solid storytelling. And with the Gloria series of videos for The Lumineers, Kano's UKMVA-winning video for Trouble (above), this has also been the year where the extended project came into its own.
