Ro James: Excuse Me Official Video

Ro James makes the ending of a relationship sound pleasurable with the soulful pleading in “Excuse Me.” The video follows James around as he sings to an ungrateful ex-girlfriend about her selfishness. He had intended for her to be his bride and the visual looks more like a personal piece than a music video. 


Mar Revisits Long For You In New Video

Mar goes back to his heavily-streamed single “Long For You” to make a live video version of the song. The Amsterdam-based singer said that after the release of his 2017 EP, Things Will Be, he wanted to recreate the song. He explained the sparse aesthetic of the video featuring him in front of a microphone in a statement: 

“I feel most at home when surrounded by musical instruments. I use them to communicate with people and respond to my environment. After recording the live versions of Spaceship, “Storm” and “Love Outro” from my latest EP ‘Things Will Be’, I felt I wanted to recreate more of my stories in a live setting. ‘Long For You’ reached over 2 million plays on Spotify and to celebrate this I chose to revisit the song.”

Watch Mar go from one instrument to the next as he re-introduces “Long For You.” 


NUEX Goes Behind The Scenes Of Their Video For Billie

Camille and Teddy of NUEX unveil the process behind their recent video for “Billie.”   The duo hops in a car and drives from Maryland to Virginia for the filming of the video that is a tribute to the life of late jazz singer Billie Holiday. The actual preparation and work for the clip is lighthearted compared to the final clip that does a good job conveying the emotional gridlock that held Holiday captive to fame and addiction.
