New York singer-songwriter Amber Mark unveils her debut music video for Lose My Cool, a revealing and intriguing slice-of-life directed by Courtney Phillips that employs different formats to frame Amber in the here and now, and also in the past, through the lens of an unseen lover.

This is good stuff. An engaging performance by Amber suggests she's a talent to watch, and with the help of a fine edit by Flaura Atkinson, Courtney Phillips shows how the accumulation of familiar unfortunate events makes it very difficult to always be nice.
