Apollo The Great
“Call It Quits”
Apollo’s track is both a declaration of talent and a challenge to his fellow artists.
“Ten Years Older”
Although this video is undeniable sad, the song’s sweet melody and melancholy lyrics serve as a great reminder: to be grateful for what we have, to enjoy the moment, and not take it for granted.
I like the slow pace of this song and the video’s strong use of contrasting color. The staggered tempo and the bold visual pack a one-two punch.
“The Big Bang”
This video is pure entertainment. Miley Cyrus is showing her sultry side, which perfectly matches the sexiness of the lyrics.
“Violent Sensation Descends”
Given that their album is named Amoral, you would expect Violens to be a band that would stir the pot. They don’t disappoint, mixing religious imagery and a hint of bloody horror with their smooth sound.
