Rewind: Our 5 Favorite Music Videos of the Last Week

In the need for a YouTube music video rabbit hole for your Thursday night? We've got you covered – always the best, hopefully something new to discover. 

‘Keep An Eye On the Road’ Zenesoul: If you need a blast of positivity, both lyrically and visually, then this gorgeous collage of good new directed by Mic Daviz is the one you seek. Shot in Lagos, Nigeria it's a beautiful closeup of the fabrics – some literal – that stick this megacity together. Dip into the lake of humanity here:

‘Cocaine’ The Silver Lines: Name a track ‘cocaine’ and depending on your tolerance for risk, you are either immediately enticed or distantly curious, but for those empirically aware, this video rings true. With deft camera movement, slightly ajar synchronization and rumbustious Mick Jagger energy, this British band lines up a great visual effort, addictive in its energy just like its namesake. Pass the bag here:

‘All Over’ Eli Jae: This corner of OTW highly over-indexes in afrobeat, for the simple reason the genre kicks off enormously rich visuals. Eli Jae’s latest hits that sensual, stumble to the bedroom, sexy that is no different. Blending high fashion looks, hot – like so hot you need a fan in your face – choreography, and a smile as infectious as the rhythm, ‘All Over’ is a song that hits just like that all over. Bring a cold drink and hit the button here:

‘Don’t Worry, I'm Fine’ Maudlin Strangers: Needed to add one to support the overly productive independents out there, even the ones that took a multi-year hiatus to get back on that long plane ride home. Billed as your “friendly neighborhood alt / indie band,” this gem of a video takes the efforts of bandleader Jake Hays, who directed, filmed and edited the whole visual affair. If you like your music peak Arctic Monkeys and your videos David Lynch inspired, this excellent concept will land you safely:

‘Someone’ Sharifa: If the genre of hyperpop-punk doesn’t get your attention, than this study of contrast visualizer certainly will, as Sharifa takes his lack of belonging and applies a surreal, mulit-isettign approach to this lonely but energetic song. Directed by harryrighthere, with loose camera movement, quick cuts and close ups, the carthasis is real and matches the frantic splits within the song. For a trip down angsty memory lane:
