When Karen O’s Crush Songs her first solo project dropped last year it was filled to the brim with eccentricities and acute performances, as you would expect from the ethereal frontwoman of one of the most exciting bands of her generation the Yeah Yeah Yeahs. But one song that really touched us all was the sweet and sumptuous ‘Singalong’.
Now that touching track has a video to match. That visuals rely upon the people of New York and a seemingly random collection of them going about their day. There is something intrinsically endearing about a video like this.
With no performance or prestige the film continues on a floating trajectory, meandering through society and ending somewhere heartfelt and honest.
It’s the perfect accompaniment to O’s gentle song writing and humble vocals, it’s a beautiful way to wake up.
