Music Video Mix: Lykke Li, Thurnis Haley & More

3 May

Lykke Li, Cinnamon Chasers, El Guincho & Thurnis Haley provide inspiring visual accompaniments for their music. Click through to watch them all…

Lykke Li – Sadness Is A Blessing

I’m still trying to figure out why some people don’t like Lykke Li, especially when she puts out work like this. This video for her song ‘Sadness Is A Blessing’ is so enthralling that it feels more like a mini-movie than a music video. Also, fans of Good Will Hunting should recognize her co-star, Stellan Skarsgård.

Cinnamon Chasers – Luv Deluxe

Whenever a video manages to combine quality music, innovative filming techniques, and a solid story line, the result is usually breathtaking. That’s exactly what director Saman Keshavarz managed to do with this video for the song ‘Lux Deluxe’ by Cinnamon Chasers off their album A Million Miles From Home. The video has won several awards, including Best Music Video at SXSW last year.

El Guincho – Bombay

This video is proof that film is not dead, as it was shot exclusively with 16mm film. This gives it a very 70’s feel, perfect for a tribute to Carl Sagan.

Thurnis Haley – Golf Wang Remix

Sometimes, the best things come from the most unexpected places. That’s probably not how the phrase goes, but whatever. The drums on this one came out of nowhere sounding like an official Left Brain beat. Good way to finish things off.
