(watch this NOT while reminiscing)
Covering a Phoenix track can’t come as easy to all as it did for Birdy. What a star. At 15 years of age she is just ridiculous. But enough of Birdy. Hailing from Moonwalk Films Nez has done his mandatory time with the likes of Kid Cudi, Uniqlo and a fun alternative to Bruno Mars’ Lazy Song vid.
Part of a rather large collective of talented directors, it is with Birdy’s video that he has set himself apart. Set in well known Brick Lane joints, the visual is beyond emotional, showcasing the ups and downs of the young and brave. The vulnerability coaxed out of the more than believable actors is breath taking/tear jerking/heart pounding/butterfly catching (take your pick), especially when matched with the angelic and surprisingly experienced Birdy. This video oozes empathy. Screams of emotions. The paper to any heart of rock.
