Bearson ft. Cal 'Want You' by Garrett Johnston
Shot at the Laundry City Superstore in Brooklyn, Garrett Johnston's video for Bearson's Want You sees the Norwegian DJ/producer's washing chores interrupted by a kind of surreal vision, involving a alluring girl, played by dancer Katherine Menna.
The laundromat then becomes the stage for the story of a relationship played out in dance. As Garrett Johnston explains below, the darkening tone reflects how the boy and girl imagine their relationship going, before they even speak to each other. It's pretty much the same idea that Gene Kelly brought to the MGM musical in the 1950s, and it still works.
"The first time I heard the song I registered a fictionalized relationship. Two strangers see each other and begin to imagine their lives with the other person. They each create an entire existence with that person before ever speaking a word.
"Want You is a pop song through and through. It's a dark and offbeat, but it's pop. So, we wanted to play into the conventions of a typical pop video. It's always starts with a story of love set in familiar location. We set up that story of desire, then let each character stray into the darker side of romance. As each character moves deeper into their fictitious relationship, they navigate the waters of jealousy, betrayal and heartache; taking us out of the realm of a standard pop video."
