“Wherever We Are”
I want to take every frame of this video and turn it into a Polaroid. It’s so visually stimulating, matching the song’s pulsing electronic beat while taking note of its darker undertones.
“Girls & Boys”
The group really captures those early moments of being a teenager when you’re learning to navigate expectations, dealing with the opinions of others, and attempting to discover who you will become. And all the confusing drama that often ensues.
A sweet song about an attempt to maintain innocence without naivety, reflected in the faces of the children watching this songstress.
I like how the video uses the gritty backdrop of the city to heighten the struggles these artists discuss in the song. However, there is still a note of hope that runs through both.
We Are The In Crowd
“Both Sides Of The Story”
An adorable show-down about the inevitable dangers of social media.
