Magneta Lane "Ugly Socialite"
Directed by Chris Grismer (Arcade Fire, The Stills, Stars)
Really well shot, but the quick edits and jerky camera reminded me of watching a bad grunge video circa 1996.
dig it. does them a lot more justice (grubby fingers off'em!). grismer's good.
huh? This was boring.
Progosk...awwww, you are a girl.
Most videos are about bands trying to be something they're not. This is the first REAL video I've seen on this site so far. It has a good song AND a decent video. Not in an eye-candy kind of way...just in a nice, relaxed, genuine kind of way. Refreshing after all the video's I've seen that try to win people over with shock value.
I like it. There's no message, they aren't selling an image and they are playing their own instruments and singing! Something you don't see very often. It's not like there's a soap-opra story to it. And i love how it was shot. The video is really good. And like what the other peron said, it's not about being something you're not, it's real. We should see that more often!
