VIDEO PICKS OF THE WEEK: Ella Grace, GHXST, Kinlaw, October Drift

Ella Grace – I Wonder

London-based singer/songwriter Ella Grace seems to be in good spirits in her new video “I Wonder,” but the song is about how a relationship can fade in times of enforced distance. Ella explains:

The person I’d been seeing and planning a future with was in Australia when countries began shutting their borders. It left our dreams crumbling and me feeling out of control, sad and a bit hopeless on the other side of the world. As lockdown progressed the relationship got more and more rocky until the past beautiful relationship was totally unsalvageable and unrecognisable.

GHXST – U R My Night

Brooklin and currently California-based grunge-noise duo GHXST just released their new EP “Dark Days”, of which “U R My Night” is part. We like the video’s focused simplicity and moodiness which serve the track well.

Kinlaw – Permissions

“Permissions” is one of the rare videos where music and visuals fit perfectly together and keep you on the edge for some three minutes. Feel free to imagine your own story here – New York-based artist Kinlaw gives you only a slight hint about the video:

I only allowed myself to write this track while I was moving forward physically. I turned it into a bit of a game; there are many mental games woven through all of the tracks, really, but this one has the most. I wrote ‘Permissions’ on a bus, in the back of a car, on a plane, and every lyric and melody was written while walking or running. I was in an extraordinary depression at that time and wanted to honor it, yet still, write something for a future that would hopefully feel different.

October Drift

British indie-rockers October Drift released a flurry of artfully intriguing videos this year, and the newest addition “Naked” is one not to be missed. The video accompanies the title track of their stunning new EP “Naked“, out now via Physical Education Records. The music video impresses and delights with its change of focus. The camera provides from far above the big picture when we see the world from a bird’s perspective, only to zoom in at the next moment, bringing us close to each band member’s face and closer still. The juxtaposition of remote distance to extreme intimacy is fascinating!
