Top 20 Music Videos of 2015

michael persallEach year, our favorite artists give us music to enjoy…and, more often than not, some amazing music videos to go along with it.

At Planet Stereo, music videos are one of the top things we get asked to cover, and most of the time, that’s fine by us! This year, the normal “Top 15” list had to be extended to 20! There were just too many amazing videos to choose from! Check out our picks below and let us know in the comments what your favorite music videos were this year!

 

1. Highly Suspect – “Lydia”

Highly Suspect’s official video for their single “Lydia,” from their album, Mister Asylum. It really is filled with incredible visuals, and was filmed entirely underwater…in one take! It’s beautifully shot, and Marina Kazankova (the girl in the video) does an incredible job. And hey, the song has been nominated for a Grammy!

2. Sam Smith – “Writing’s On The Wall”

Considering that this video was teased relentlessly, its release was like a moment from the “Hallelujah” chorus. The video is stunningly cinematic, much like the track itself…and of course, it helps that Sam Smith can do no wrong and that the track is for a Bond film!

3. Tillian – “Satellite”

Animated by John Howe, “Satellite,” is both a wonderful, unique video, and a definite stand-out for the year!

4. PVRIS“White Noise”

I cannot praise PVRIS enough; there’s just too much talent to even begin to try. And the video for “White Noise,” which pays homage to the horror film Poltergeist, is excellent.

5. New Found Glory – “Vicious Love (ft. Hayley Williams)”

Not only is this video incredibly funny, but it features guest vocals (and an appearance) from Paramore vocalist Hayley Williams (a.k.a. the Future Mrs. Chad Gilbert). The track itself is incredibly catchy, but the video is both comedic and full of great Halloween ideas.

6. The Maine – “English Girls”

Yet another clever video! The Maine’s video for “English Girls” shows the members of the band on a pretty crazy night out, leaving everyone wondering: Who did John O’Callaghan wake up next to?

7. Marianas Trench“One Love”

There’s something about Marianas Trench’s music video for “One Love” that is so 2003…in the best possible way. The track has a powerful sound, and, when added with the great visual, how could you not love it?

8. Adele – “Hello”

Adele is back, and she came back with a simple, “Hello.” The video broke the records set by Taylor Swift’s VMA-premiered “Bad Blood,” and is stunningly pieced together.

9. Lady Gaga – “Till It Happens To You”

Lady Gaga’s new Grammy-nominated track, “Till It Happens To You,” is an extraordinary song with a strong presence. The video brings the song and the scary statistics about sexual assault on college campuses, to life. The song is from The Hunting Ground film, which is available now: http://bit.ly/1E6XAFl The video warns that there are triggering, graphic scenes depicted, and I will reiterate that now: TRIGGER WARNING. This video contains graphic images that may act as a trigger for some people.

10. Ella Henderson – “Mirror Man”

The soulful track is powerful, memorable, and the video is just as strong. Ella Henderson’s vocals are golden.

11. Bring Me The Horizon“Throne” (…and “True Friends,” just for the storyline.)

The Game Of Thrones vibes from this video are all there, and the quality is unreal. The editing is perfect, with everything timed excellently.

12. Panic! At The Disco“Emperor’s New Clothes”

The makeup and cinematography of this video are…wow. I mean, Brendon Urie becomes a devil.

13. All Time Low“Something’s Gotta Give”

This was easily one of the best videos of the year, no questions asked; it’s funny, it has zombies (zombie makeup!), and, of course, a catchy track to go along with it.

14. DIVIDES “Echoes Fade”

My favorite thing about this video (and all of DIVIDES’ recent videos)? They’re all made in-house. The band filmed and edited the whole thing, and it’s extremely impressive. “Echoes Fade” is the kind of video that you just find yourself mesmerized by, and rightly so.

15. Taylor Locke – “Call Me Kuchu”

“Call Me Kuchu” is soulful, and reminiscent of classic rock. Inspired by the documentary of the same name, the song and video come together in a stunning metaphor; shedding light on the lack of basic human rights in Uganda, where being gay is considered criminal. The music video, directed by art/editorial photographer Logan White, acts as a satire, featuring Dr. Kuchu, a turn-of-the-century magician and snake oil profiteer.

16. Michael Persall“The Move”

The Move,” an upbeat tune that perfectly captures a sweet courtship, all the while showcasing some of Persall’s enviable vocal talents. The indie-pop/rock single is radio worthy, with perfect timing, a happy-go-lucky charm, and a fantasy appeal, as seen in the music video.

17. Hands Like Houses – “I Am”

“I Am” is a video that proves “a little goes a long way.” It is so simply put together, but carries such a weight visually (and musically). It’s truly minimalism at its finest.

18. Halsey – “New Americana”

This video has the post-apocolyptic edge that I imagined Taylor Swift’s “Bad Blood” would have. It helps that the song is ridiculously catchy.

19. Set It Off – “Ancient History”

Set It Off have released some pretty cool videos recently, but “Ancient History” works so well with the whole time-travel kind of thing (very fitting for the year of Back To The Future). 

20. Jade The Moon – “U Take Care”

Jade The Moon’s “U Take Care” video has a stunning, haunting feel to it. The video, written and directed by Chad Rook, is wonderfully symbolic, working well as a metaphor for the effects of love and hurt. With soaring vocals, the electro-pop track is sensational.

PREMIERE: “My House” PVRIS Cover by Ghosts Again

ghosts againPost-hardcore outfit Ghosts Again are already known for their anthemic, melodic, and driven musical style, and now the band is tackling the epic PVRIS track, “My House.” The video is wonderfully simple, featuring Alex Cotright (vox/guitar) singing into a mic: no ruffles, no frills, nothing fancy, but something minimalistic to help you truly appreciate the work put into this cover. Ghosts Again, comprised of Cotright, Connor Vogt (guitar), Brandon Washington (bass), and Arun Brose (drums), have perfectly paid homage to PVRIS without the cover becoming an imitation.

We have the exclusive premiere of the band’s cover of “My House.” Check it out below and let us know what you think in the comments below!

PVRIS’ Lynn Gunn On Being Gay and a Role Model

pvris

PVRIS front woman Lynn Gunn sat down with BBC’s Newsbeat, where she shared her thoughts on the importance of being open about sexuality. “I used to want to be private about it,” she claimed. “But I think it’s something that needs to be shared publicly.”

The singer states that she never had a gay role model when she was growing up. “I never had someone to look up to and be like, ‘Oh, that person is okay, and they’re gay.’ If I can be that for someone, then it’s why I’m open about it,” she says, adding that she has a lot of interaction with fans on the subject via social media. “I think a lot of people are trying to accept themselves and come to terms with it because it’s still a pretty big thing right now.

“I think it’s good to have an open mind and speak about stuff if you have a platform to,” Lynn adds in the interview. “As long as it’s something positive and something that’s beneficial to other people”.

PVRIS released White Noise in 2014 via Rise Records. They will be joining Bring Me The Horizon and Issues on a whirlwind US tour this fall.

PVRIS’ Lynn Gunn Shuts Down Rumors of a Ghost Writer

pvris

People on the Internet are crazy sometimes…

Earlier today, PVRIS’ Lynn Gunn took to Twitter to shut down rumors floating around (pun very much intended) claiming the band use a ghost writer to help craft their music. With a few jabs of witty sarcasm, Gunn got serious and set the record straight, claiming, “I don’t usually care about rumors, but as someone who busts their ass 24/7 and carries a mini-studio in their backpack at all times, fuck off.”

You can see all of her tweets below.
