Our round-up of the videos in the first month of 2020 features everyone from Grammy winners - present and past - to virtual unknowns, and lots in-between.
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).
February brought all kinds of grimness into our lives. But also a whole lot of good videos...
What's there to say about the month's just gone? We'll probably never forget it, that's for sure...
So we have managed to get through another month of this. But more than that, April 2020 was the month when music videos captured the spirit of the moment in the coronavirus crisis.
