No hanging about in 2019. You guys have hit the ground running with an unusually strong start to the year in terms of the output of music vids.
Videos Of The Month - April 2018
Aaargh! How did April go so quickly? That's one third of the year gone already...
Oh well, at least summer is on its way, apparently... And that speedy April did shower us with some splendid music videos (see what we did there?). Like this super psycho-comedy drama for Father John Misty from Jeff Desom and Carlos Lopez Estrada (above).
April also saw the welcome return of Vania Heymann and Gal Muggia for DJ Snake, AG Rojas teaming up with Florence Welch, Janelle Monae's striking vagina pants in Emma Westernberg's video for PYNK (and later, her 'Emotion Picture' to accompany the new album), the latest and most striking in a series of Moses Sumney videos by Ali Avital, and two new Leon Bridges videos by Natalie Rae.
Plus Edgar Wright made a guest return to music videos for Beck - and Apple Music. Will they get us all in the end? Is that necessarily a bad thing anyway? Something to mull over perhaps, as you wander through the spring sunshine. Or spring rain. Or snow...
Just watch these first...
