New Music: Only Real – Cadillac Girl

Rating:

The music video for West London’s up and coming ‘hip-popper’ Only Real’s new single ‘Cadillac Girl’ is a vision of the summer we’d all want to have. Tropical beaches, beautiful girls, and then having fun with your mates back in your home town.

The entire video looks like it was filmed with an Instagram filter, as if to make these experiences, even ones such as eating burgers and chips with your mates, seem even more picture perfect.

Overall, the video isn’t too overly ambitious, as Only Real is still a fairly young and upcoming artist, but is laidback, carefree and matches the playfulness of the song and its lyrics perfectly. Considering Only Real wrote ‘Cadillac Girl’ and directed the music video himself, if this is anything to go by, he could well become the Mike Skinner or Jamie T of today’s young Instagram generation.
