-Music Videos on my Mind- Georgia Ruth’s “Week of Pines”

The best thing about music blogging is that you get to share stuff you like with others who may also respond to it. Then there’s stuff you don’t particularly feel a connection to but flag up because other people you respect really like it. In this case, Steve Lamacq, a British music critic some of us grew up listening to on the radio and very much admire, described Georgia Ruth’s Week of Pines as like ‘running through a forest made entirely of gorgeous ribbons.’
That is just too good an image to discard, and, even though the song seems rather soft, the music video is a seriously marvellous piece of editing where the graphic continuity from one still image to the next is excellently juxtaposed. This kind of montage seems deceptively simple, but it must be so complex to pull off.
In conclusion, this music video is easy on the ears and pleasing to the eyesit just has no kick.

  1. I'm not familiar with Steve Lamacq, but I like his description of the song. I think it's "pretty."
