I’ll Be With You
Artist: Black Lips
Album: 200 Million Thousand
Label: Vice Records
Notes: 2nd single from LP
Analysis: I don’t know if there’s been a video yet this year that is more suited to its song than ‘I’ll Be With You’. Shot in the style of home movies from the 50’s in true Wonder Years opening credits fashion. The band opens presents on Christmas morning, blows out birthday candles with a clown, and plays their instruments for the camera all to the tune of the lo-fi twang of the song. It’s funny to see the band acting like children (having tears streaming while petting their new cat was genius), and the early rock ‘n roll feel of the song would have fit in great in the 50’s which is why the video is so perfect.
