I remember spending my teenage years watching tons of rock music videos especially on VH1 and MTV (back when they were still a music station). I had dreams of being a rock star back then. Good times. These videos are
Bring Us Together feat. Pro by Prime Circle
I like this video, a lot. Especially because of the concept of the painting being done. I want it! I love collaborations between rock bands and hip-hop artists especially if it can be pulled of seamlessly without changing the song into a hip-hop song with a “rock chorus.” This song is brilliant in that regard, it’s still clearly a Prime Circle song while giving lots of time to Pro to shine. The band did real good.
Sons of Robots by Rash
Kenyan band Rash went for an 80’s vibe in this video and I love it. The fun the band can clearly been seen having is infectious and you begin to dance along. Great stuff!
Rain Man by ParkingLotGrass
There’s a lot of swag on display in this video by Kenyan rockers, ParkingLotGrass. The suits, the expressions, the film noir aesthetics. Well done
Bungalow by Al Bairre
I love the quirkiness on display in this video. It’s so different and refreshing. I loved when the twins started to sing especially. Great stuff
Live Like You’re on Fire feat. Luke Edwards by Set For The Sky
Lot’s of angst and emotion on display here by South African alternative/post-hardcore band Set For The Sky.
