Cat Velez - 1st Dec 2015

Aside from the UKMVA excitement in the first week of the month, November brought us another rich seam of work in music videos. This included more idiosyncratic self-directed videos by unconventional pop artists, in this case, M.I.A. and Grimes; Henry Scholfield returned to his roots to direct an excellent video for Sir Spyro's Side By Side; graphic designers Lernert & Sander's impressive 3-in-1 video for Dutch electronic group De Jeugd Van Tegenwoordig showed how interactive videos don;t have to be complicated to work well; Shynola broke a few rules themselves, releasing their second video for the same Raleigh Ritchie track, Bloodsport. 

The month ended in monkey fashion: CANADA's Tame Impala video featuring a surreal love triangle between a basketball player, a rythmic gymnast and the gorilla named Trevor. And then Coldplay's freshly released Adventure Of A Lifetime follows the band as apes, having the time of their lives.
