Happy November! Looks like the holiday season is finally upon us! And while it's that time of the year again when many of us become merry and full of cheer, there's a chance you might need an escape from all of the hustle and bustle of seasonal shopping crowds, festivities, Christmas music and decorations. Our monthly music video collaboration with Maria Dicieanu, Submarine Channel author & former 2Pause.com editor, may just offer the getaway you need! Maria's Pick for November brings you into a zen, chill space while also serving up a healthy, lovely dose of visuals and musical perfection. Soak up the sparkling ambience of Jordan Bruner's eye-popping, abstract video for Nelly Kate’s tune “Unreceived”, a collaboration that practically (well, literally) glitters. Maria describes her newest pick below:
“She doesn't do music videos on a regular basis, but when digital artist and gifs mastermind Jordan Bruner has a go at promos, the results are nothing short of spectacular. From Hem's “Tourniquet” - portraying a love story between two forest foxes exploring the wilderness of a city ran by animals, to the eclectic psychedelic PacMan-ish animations for Paramore's “Anklebiters”, her works are mesmerizing mashups of eclectic shapes and colors with a touch of cutting edge originality.
In her most recent promo, a collaboration with Nelly Kate, Bruner delivers her most abstract music video yet. “Unreceived” sums up a series of looping visuals Jordan made for the singer's summer tour. The different fragments blend together beautifully, cohesively portraying a story about the disintegration of processes through repetition. The fuzzy visuals brilliantly enhance and compliment the song's story dealing with a couple's struggle to fight the routine out of their relationship.
Using simple yet intriguing shapes, Burner once again creates a fascinating yet haunting piece that can have you hypnotized for hours.”
If you've yet to see any of Bruner’s work or hear this month's pick, experiencing the combination of the two together for the first time means you're in for a real treat. So, get ready to immerse yourself in this glittering goodness. While you're at it, you can revisit some of Maria's best picks, including the stunning animated journey that makes up Makeunder's "Great Headless Bank" (created by Carine Khalife). See you next month, as we wrap up 2016 with another wondrous pick! Enjoy!
