Slow was written as a tender look at sex between two men in the early stages of falling in love; becoming aware of those moments where you’re really starting to feel “stuff” haha. Sonically, I was inspired by artists like Chris Isaak and Beach House for this song and wanted to create a musical landscape that felt sultry yet vulnerable. I liked the arrangement being mostly electric guitar loops and drum machines to create that dreamy and trance-like vibe.
Buckle up for an unholy alliance between Fury Road, Tron, a random midnight movie you'd rent on VHS from Blockbuster Video, and a high speed experience meets Oculus Rift.
Matt Bellamy, Muse: "Life on the road can bring out your inner beast, this song and video is about taming that beast, desiring a return to something human. Plus, Teen Wolf is cool."
Lance Drake, director: "Our aim with 'Something Human' was to continue the journey that began in 'Dig Down' and 'Thought Contagion.' Pulling further into a simulated world we follow Matt, Dom, and, Chris on the chase of a lifetime - where something as simple as returning some video tapes becomes an epic journey."
Extreme turbulence and a literal crash landing in this unexpected video for Vic Mensa's unguarded new song.
Andrew Donoho, director "Rage stood out as one of the most powerful, personal, and intense songs Vic has released, and I wanted to create something equally visceral. The song stemmed from his mindset during a fight with depression and addiction, so a plane crash felt like the perfect metaphor for the loss of control and the battle for survival. Burying this metaphor into a drug/alcohol fueled death-dream allowed the raw emotion of the song to manifest on screen in a harrowing narrative that takes place between fantasy and reality."
Things reveal themselves to be increasingly complicated as we look around Kari Faux's heartbreak home, but an end twist makes clear there's an even bigger, and stranger, danger outside her apartment window.
Director Isaac Ravishankara unravels a gorgous and slow-burning apocalyptic tale that's way more about emotion than destruction. Or to reference an old R.E.M. song, it's the end of the world as they know it, but Selah Sue feels a bit less than fine.
