CHOZE - Badderz
London, United Kingdom
‘BADDERZ’ by CHOZE starts off with the zoom into a tower and then is accompanied by the speech “the following warning…”. As we get further into the video, we witness what appears to be CHOZE rapping along to the lyrics in what appears to be some sort of vehicle. As the video progresses further, we witness the artist CHOZE in what appears to be a nightlife setting discussing something with either workmates or an agency. What I liked about the video was the Synth wave/neon aesthetic which was consistent throughout the video and this video is a must-see.

Sugar Land, Texas, United States
‘It Moves in You’ by Mark Winters starts with a close of a guitar and then depicts what appears to be Mark Winters singing the lyrics of this song to a woman who is smiling at him. As we progress further into the video, we see psychedelic shots of Mark Winters performing this song to the camera which offers a performance narrative to the music video. What I liked about the video is the imagery of the neon blue lights with a silhouette of Mark Walters. This video is one to watch and bravo to Mark Winters for this video.
LUCY CHAN - Mountain Majesty
‘Mountain Majesty’ by Lucy Chan starts off with close shots of a book, two people walking and a man in a car driving. The video then showcases the artist Lucy Chan performing the lyrics to the camera providing a performance narrative to the music video. As the video progresses further, we witness Lucy Chan and what appears to be her on screen partner dancing and walking around the setting of the music video. Something that I enjoyed in this music video is Lucy Chan dancing to the camera as it provides something different to the video. Bravo to Lucy Chan for this amazing music video.
Uncle T - Lose My Way
Philadelphia, United States
‘Lose My Way’ by Uncle T starts with what appears to be the artist Uncle T at a train platform. The video then progresses to show what appears to be Uncle T walking in the street but also depicts her to be performing to the camera which gives it the performance style. As we travel further into the video, we witness the artist Uncle T attempting to open a suitcase in front of a neon background which gives the music video a nice pop of colour. What I enjoyed about the video was the setting and the aesthetic that went along with it.
EGO JONES - Paper Tiger (Official Music Video)
Dallas, TX, United States
‘Paper Tiger’ by Ego Jones is a five minute and 52 seconds video which starts with aesthetics of a city nightlife for example, neon lights and tall buildings in the dark. In this video we see a group of 4 friends roaming freely around the city and doing their own thing. As we progress further into the video, we see psychedelic images of the lead singer of Ego Jones performing to the camera which was a nice alternative to the focus of the 4 friends in the city. What I enjoyed about the video is the different aesthetics of it.
GREY RIVER AND THE SMOKY MOUNTAIN - Unlovable
‘Unlovable’ by Grey Mountain & The Smoky Mountain starts with a close shot of a woman in a shower and circles her singing the lyrics of this track in the song throughout the video. As the video progresses, we witness the woman getting older as time goes by. This could reflect the concept of ’Unlovable’ and was nice to see in this video. At the end of the video, we see the younger and older version of the woman hugging which showcases the heartfelt emotion in this video. Overall, this video was really nice to review and I hope to review Grey Mountain & The Smoky Mountains videos soon.

Miami, United States
‘Hot Night’ by Moonlight Jones starts with a cinematic overlay which is enjoyable to see in today’s day and age as it gives the music video a retro kick. As we progress further into the video, we see what appears to be a man getting ready for a show which infers that there is a performance style to the video. Towards the end of the video, we see that the same guy is recording what appears to be his girlfriend or partner. What I liked about the video is that it depicts true love between two people.
FIRE BY NIGHT - Menagerie
Phoenix, AZ, United States
‘Menagrie’ by Fire by night starts with the band Fire by Night rocking out to the track which gives a performance style to the music video. As we progress further into the video, we see that the band is being tied and stripped down which could reflect the message of being prejudiced for being different is not ok. What I liked about the video is the narrative and message accompanied by the performance style and the contrast between the two. Overall, this video was really enjoyable to review, and I hope to review future projects from Fire by Night.

‘Stoney Lonesome Road’ By Ludlow Creek starts with a hazy forest image which was enjoyable to see and immediately caught my eye as I watched the video. As we progress into the video, we see images that correlate to the lyrics of the song and the band Ludlow Creek performing the track. Further on into the video we witness the band walking along down a road which could be ‘Stoney Lonesome Road’. What I enjoyed about the video is the contrast of images aligned with the video and the band's performance. Bravo to Ludlow Creek for making this video so enjoyable to watch.
Sarafin - Static Featuring ELMNT (Prod. Junia-T)
‘Static’ by Sarafin featuring Elmnt starts with the image of a static tv screen and is consistent throughout the entire music video. This adds a concept to the music video which was enjoyable to see. Another thing that I liked is that the static imagery fit in time with the vibe and the beat of the song. As this video is like a visualiser, it was very enjoyable to watch due to the aesthetics and how it was created. If you are a fan of this type of video and aesthetic, then this video is one to watch.
