What's there to say about the month's just gone? We'll probably never forget it, that's for sure...
Videos of the Month - September 2018
Some great stuff came out in September - and some of it still managed to get under the wire to be included in the mix for this year's UKMVAs.
That included The Blaze's latest self-directed gem, for Queens, Seb Edwards' video for Jon Hopkins, King Krule's Biscuit Town, directed by CC Wade, a live Moses Sumney for Rank & File, and Young Replicants' gorgeous vid for Leon Vynehall's Movements (okay, we confess we just missed that one when it was released in June).
The UKMVAs' rules that allow videos that are finished but not released yet to be entered is the reason for this. But of course most of the new work that we featured in September is now eligible for next year's MVAs. So maybe you are looking at some early contenders for 2019 honours right here.
That includes Vince Haycock's heart-rending video new British artist Sam Fender, Geej Ower's fab video for Ray Blk's Empress, Raleigh Ritchie in a lift, and of course, the return of Kanye West, with Lil Pump and Adele Givens, with the foul-mouthed yet hilarious I Love It (above), co-directed by 'Ye' and Amanda Adelson, and exec produced by Spike Jonze.
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.
