Catch Up: Music videos I’ve missed while doing other stuff

Kylie Minogue All The Lovers

Hey there, guys! You may have noticed that my blogging activity has been rather low lately. That’s because I’ve just moved to a new house, new town and I also have a new job so I’m pretty much occupied getting used to my new surroundings. However, after a week, I decided that my blog needs a bit of attention again so here’s some new music videos by some of the biggest pop artists at the minute.

Kylie Minogue: All The Lovers

Kylie Minogue’s new single All The Lovers from forthcoming album Aphrodite saw its video release about a week ago. Directed by Joseph Khan (Britney Spears: Womanizer), you can watch the video below:

Wow! How stunning was that video?! Kylie is possibly the only popstar who can get away with selling really raunchy imagery and come out of it looking completely innocent. If this were Lady GaGa or Rihanna, the video would be complete trash but Kylie manages to give off a really sensual vibe, making the gang bang in the street look positively romantic. The cinematography is beautiful and I’m sure that this will be yet another iconic Kylie clip.

JLS: The Club Is Alive

Those heartthrobs JLS release the video for new single The Club Is Alive the new single from their sophomore album, which they hope will help them crack the US. Directed by Frank Borin, you can watch the video below.

Sigh. I really want to like these guys but its impossible to when they make such terrible music and have such a cheesy image. I was hoping that they would mature with the next album, still hold onto their tween fanbase but grow up a bit so older people could enjoy their music. This video is probably their best yet – but that’s not really saying much seeing as there previous three videos were low budget and not exactly exciting clips. Some of the dance moves are questionable too although I blame their choreographer instead of them because I do know they are good dancers. I’m sure, regardless of my opinion, this song will be a hit and the YouTube is sure to rack up plenty of views.

Paramore: Careful

Punk pop favourites Paramore are back with the fourth single from their album Brand New Eyes. The Careful video was put together by director Brandon Chesboro, who directed the band’s previous video The Only Exception.

I’m pretty disappointed with this video to be honest. This is the third video by the band to contain clips of them performing live and backstage footage, after the videos for All We Know and Hallelujah. Sure, Paramore have great cammaderie and give the impression that they’d be fun to hang around with but I don’t think footage of them goofing around fits with the moody angsty nature of the song. Oh well.

The clip for Kelly Rowland’s new single Commander has also leaked online in low quality. You can watch it on YouTube but I won’t post the video until the proper premiere for the video on Monday, 14 June.

    Blech, JLS are so boring and predictable. Next!

    Personally, I love the Paramore video/song, but I agree that it would’ve gone better with a song like Where The Lines Overlap.

      Thanks so much Lucille. Unfortunately, I don’t get to blog as much as I like because I have a damn life (grr! Lol!) but what you said means a lot! For some reason, your comment went in my spam folder. Stupid WordPress. Make sure to come back and read this blog and comment regularly. There’s nothing more rewarding than comments and I love to use them as a way of discussing music.
