It goes without saying that music video production had been on the problematic side for the past couple of years. But as the world attempts to regroup, artists have returned to express all their pent-up artistic chutzpah and this can mean only one thing— the independent music films are BACK! And while there have been many brilliant clips that have captured our imagination over the past year, the three visual stunners below have added the most wows per frame. For the GTC, anyway. No doubt about it.
Buckle up, from a socially conscious anthem, pushing back on conventional faith, to the beauty and wild side of being young— here are The GTC Top Videos 2022!
BROKEN BABY Make Manager
ALBUM: Single Release
DIRECTOR: Tony Diaz
“…fun is exactly the vibe you get from “Make Manager” and made crystal clear by the accompanying Tony Diaz-directed music video. A guerilla-style film shot on location in “…a Targé! And also a Walmart and a Hobby Lobby – maybe a Ross, too? Tried to hit ’em all up. hahaha”, according to (Amber) Bollinger. If you remember that hallowed Jennifer Connelly/Frank Whaley rom-com Career Opurtinites (1991), it’s like that but with fewer filming permits (allegedly).” (GTC, 5. September 2022)
THE WESTERN CIVILIZATION Bible Verses for Kids
ALBUM: Fractions of A Whole
“DON’T LET THE COVER ART FOOL YOU! This is a song about hypocrisy. An attempt to reconcile the widely accepted marginalization within the church and conservative America. We think it’s kind of a banger! Bible Verses for Kids is first single and video from our upcoming album, Fractions of A Whole.” (Facebook, 3. October 2022)
HELLSINGLAND UNDERGROUND Young & Dumb
ALBUM: Endless Optimism
DIRECTOR: Charlie Gramberg
“And here is the video for ”Young & Dumb”. We had a lot of different ideas for it. One was to go out and just film a bunch of Epa-traktor (google it) driving kids as they party and behave badly. But finally, we landed in the idea of putting our own kids to work. Classic child labour.
“So we asked my (Charlies) daughter Nico and Jerry’s son Louie (and his brother Otis in a supporting roll) if they wanted to anything they ever dreamt of doing, and we’ll pay for it. Which they agreed to, funilly enough. They had the time of their lives.” (Facebook, 4 November 2022)
