Two months into 2019, and we're clocking up some very good work, from Dexter Navy's latest collab with A$AP Rocky to Low Country hip-hop artist Zwanger Guy's eyecatching videos.
Videos of the Month - April 2019
Creativity blossomed in April, suggesting that this may be a bumper year for music videos.
Here's our pick of the best work that we featured last month, when, as usual the good stuff came from all over.
For instance, from directors making a welcome return to music videos, with bangers - like Andrew Thomas Huang (FKA Twigs) and Andreas Nilsson (2 Chainz). Then there's the current crop of established directors: Henry Scholfield (Stormzy), Matilda Finn (Bob Moses and Rosie Lowe), Zhang + Knight (Eden), David Wilson (Chris), Warren Fu (Gesffelstein & Pharrell), Tim Mattia (Ellie G).
And, of course, a host of up and coming talent completes the picture - including Bedroom (Beabadobee, pictured), CC Wade (Fat White Family), Sophia + Robert (Askjell), Samuel Taylor (Crows) and super-hot Spanish duo Diana Kunst and Mau Ma (James Blake and Rosalía, Madonna).
