Watch MNEK's Tender -- and Trippy -- New Video, "Wrote A Song About You"
We're crazy about 19-year-old British soulster MNEK's warm-weather jam, "Every Little Word," and now he's released a throwback video for his latest '90s-esque house single, "Wrote A Song About You." Bristol-based animator RUFFMERCY, the brain behind Lily Allen's "Sheezus" and Disclosure's "F For You" videos, created the trippy squiggles and flashing neon graphics that surround MNEK throughout the clip.
The track itself is a broken love song with lonely lyrics disguised by MNEK's bright melodies and sharp, electronic instrumentation. It's a marriage that seems to be dominating the UK music scene right now -- people love to cry, but not in the sobbing, piano-driven, ferociously scribbling in your diary way. That's so pasÃ©. Tears should only be shed while dancing in a dark club with a vodka tonic in-hand, and MNEK serves up the proper anthem to do so. Check it out above.
