Music Video Greats
Title of film: M.I.A. - Bad Girls
Director: Romain Gavras
Production Company: Iconoclast

The oh-my-god-what-the-hell-is-she-wearing moments, the tearful acceptance speeches and the glassy smiles of the runners up – no it’s not the Oscars, it’s something far more glitzy. The 1.4 music video roundup! And walking the red carpet tonight: Romain Gavras, Henry Scholfield, Seb Edwards, Sean Pecknold and Yoann Lemoine.

M.I.A. Bad girls directed by Romain Gavras

Right, we have a sneaky suspicion that the song is about giving head in moving cars, but Romain Gavras’ promo for M.I.A’s Bad Girl’s is an entirely different kettle of controversy. Drag-racing Lawrence of Arabia style – we like.

Will Young, Losing Myself directed by Henry Scholfield

Henry Scholfield picks up on the neutral, beige-y Gap aesthetic of the modern sci-fi movie and explores loss of identity in this rather pleasingly choreographed Will Young video.

Lana Del Rey, Born to Die directed by Yoann Lemoine

Heavily tattooed hipster boys, tigers and insane rococo interior design – Yoann Lemoine takes a few of our favourite things and fashions a rather sultry promo for marmite it-girl of the moment, Lana Del Ray.

James Blake, A Case of You, directed by Seb Edwards

It was the best of times, it was the worst of times… Seb Edwards casts a nostalgic eye over the extremes of a tumultuous relationship.

Fleet Foxes, The Shrine, Sean Pecknold

Sean Pecknold’s longstanding relationship with Fleet Foxes just keeps bearing luscious fruit. His latest music video for the indie folk band is a magical, shamanic journey.
