So you’ve all herd of Owl City, I’m quite sure you have. Did you know that he has a few singles out there that somehow have slid under the radar? Ah, you should’ve known that! For a while now the song Youtopia by Adam Young from Owl City and musically adapt Armin van Buuren has been blasting it’s way across the internet, but never given much attention. Well, now there is an oficial music video for it that features none other than Adam himself! It’s rare for a single this unknown to get a music video, much a legit one with the artist himself featured in it.
Now, I’m not quite sure what is going on in the video, obviously she is recreating memories of a love she has lost, but at times it comes off a little creepy. Watch it and you will know what I mean. The romance scenes seem a tad rehearsed and fake, but hey, Adam is a musician, not an actor! The girl however, she could do better and to my knowledge she is an actress. For example, notice when she wakes up towards the end…she just pops her eyes open! Normally, to seem less scripted, one would expect a slow opening of the eyes for a more dramatic realization that reality has sunk in. Anyway, we liked the video, watch and determine for yourself!
The new song All About Us by He Is We, featuring Owl City, is well, a love song. However, it has more to offer than just being a cute love song. He Is We is an indie group that I haven’t listened to before, and I was impressed with this. Adding in the more familiar voice of Owl City just added a bonus to what could have already been a good song. Their voices go so well together!
So, maybe you’re not convinced by a love song. The video is very powerful. Not only is it beautiful, literally! The visual aspect of it is wonderful. The scenery, and backgrounds are remarkable. The video has a deeper more beautiful and unexpected meaning. It’s sweet and emotional, showing two overly adorable lovers. The twist is that the girl had cancer, and by the end of the video has lost her hair from chemotherapy. The boy is staying with her, taking her out, and even gives a ring.
After listening to the song, and putting it with the video, it’s given it a deeper meaning. It made me smile, and feel. Also, now I’m more curious about the group He Is We and am actually going to look them up on iTunes right now. You can listen and buy All About Us on iTunes!
