Ever noticed how music videos seem to often be made of the same old boring stuff? You know, lifelessly scripted performances or really bland pseudo-dramatic storylines? Well, forget all that. London-based indie songwriter Lou E has just released the beautifully hand drawn video to ‘Next Time’, the second track on his debut 7″ single.

The track itself is a neat mash up of alt-folk with indie, pumping out a charmingly sloppy and moody guitar line to rumble underneath an oddly Tim Burgess type of vocal delivery. But the video makes the track a lot more interesting, blending noteback style lyric doodles dancing in the foreground while face silhouettes mouth along to the vocal. It’s pretty surreal, not least when the two merge in a pure artistic oddity.

 

‘Next Time’ is available now as track two on Lou E’s debut release via Beech Coma’s Singles Club Bandcamp page. Sadly the video doesn’t come with purchase, but the song itself is pretty neat.
