Director Paul Trillo was kind enough to share his recent directorial effort with the official video for The Peach Kings single ‘Lonely’. It’s a lovely video featuring ‘invisible people in lycra suits’ as Paul puts it. I think that’s friendly shorthand for some imaginative and evocative imagery. It’s a Vimeo Staff pick already also so you know quality is assured. Congrats on a great video and thanks for the email Paul.

Joshua Catalano developed this simple music video that in many ways almost feels like the graphics are generative based on the actual audio. It doesn’t look like Proce55ing though I could be totally wrong. If you know any more than I do, please leave a comment or two.

“Dancehall Queen Style is a Jamaican dance fashion which became popular in the 1990s through music videos and The Grind show on MTV. The video is a playful take on the dancehall culture with its provocative costumes, suggestive poses, roles and blatant sexuality.”

Originally GRIND was made for Art gallery/-museum KIASMA and exhibition “Thank you for the music” 2012.

I will totally and openly acknowledge that the image above might be a little off putting to some (while totally inviting to others) but you have to trust me on this because there is something rather ‘glorious’ about this little video and yes ‘glorious’ is precisely the right word in this situation.
