Another musical invasion from the UK: Jessie Ware’s WILDEST MOMENTS

So this Jessie Ware, if you haven’t heard of her, is talented and different and old school mates with some singer named Adele and some other singer named Florence, as in Florence and the Machine.

If you like music, and music videos, you’ll like what she does here.

Many, many rock and pop stars tend to make videos that all look the same, and I mean that both ways: every video they make looks like (a) every other video they’ve ever made and (b) every other video made by similar artists. This has been true since Hair Bands put on their first pair of spandex pants in 1982 and will be true forever.

Jessie the Ware tries something different every time, and here she tries something simple and stark and interesting: just her, a plain background and a swiveling chair.

I like it, I love it, I want some more of it.

  1. This reminds me of Apple’s aesthetic: clean, simple, no frew-froo or however you spell it.

  2. George Fripley

    I’d just like to use an overused word – Awesome!

  3. Thanks Guy. I get to know more about the British pop scene with you than I do over here. Despite being ancient I love Adele ( till she took out a restraining order) and I think this girl sounds OK too . She looked too smart and tidy to be a pop star so I imagined her wearing lederhosen and flippers below the angle of the camera.
    Keep well, Keep writing.

  4. Sold! Thanks for the heads up about this artist. Just ordered the CD.
