This week we'll be featuring the work of the winners of the Los Angeles Music Video Festival.
Few people can pull off elegant but dorky–or is it dorky but elegant? Jennifer Lawrence and Hugh Jackman come to mind. Now we can add Solange to that list.
The Non-Narrative Video category at this year's LA Music Video Festival had some of the stiffest competition going. Picking a favorite from a set that included Matt & Kim's "Let's Go" (dir. Dugan O'Neal), Tenacious D's "Rize of the Fenix" (dir. DANIELS) and the starkly beautiful video for Earl Sweatshirt's "Chum" directed by Hiro Murai was gut wrenching.
The award went to the Melina Matsoukas directed "Losing You" from Solange, and it's well earned. I challenge you to watch this video and not find yourself falling in love with her.
I double dog dare you.
