I thought I’d share two fun music videos for your Friday! Here is a new release and an old favorite so watch, listen, dance, laugh, and most of all enjoy your weekend!
The collaboration of M. Ward and Zooey Deschanel in their new She & Him music video “Don’t Look Back” is at once cookie cutter cutesy and hipster funky at the same time. This duo bee-bops around the video as if the 60′s never happened and it’s still a sci-fi fantasy that they’re hoping to live through.
Directed by Jeremy Konner and choreographed by Sophie Olson the “Don’t Look Back” video reminds me, in a great kind of way, of Feist’s music video “1 2 3 4″ from 2007.
So here is for fun Fridays and great weekends!
Summer is fast approaching, and I have a feeling that She & Him‘s new album Volume Two will be essential part of my summer soundtrack.
If you aren’t familiar with She & Him, here’s the breakdown:
The band consists of M. Ward, a indie singer-songwriter who rose to fame out of the Portland, Oregon, music scene, and Zooey Deschanel, one of our favorite actresses here at Lulus.com. M. Ward was impressed by Zooey’s singing in the movie Elf, and after she sent him some demos, he insisted she record them proper. Thus, She & Him was born.
I first heard of She & Him almost two years ago to the day, when I was asked to record a video review of their first album, Volume One, for the college radio station I was working for. I’ve had them stuck in my head ever since.
The pair just premiered the video for their new single “In the Sun” that’s absolutely adorable. Check it out below:
Their sophomore album, Volume Two, hits stores March 23, so mark your calendars.
