Every week, a slew of latest track movies hits the internet. Watching them at your table isn't time robbery since you deserve it; recall to mind it as a pleasant praise for surviving some other paintings week. But what if you happen to don’t have time to look at each video — possibly you will have a cut-off date, a hungry puppy, or different grown-up considerations. In attention of your agenda, Lizzie and Kaitlyn deliver you a chain known as One Video. Each week we’ll let you know “one video” you want to look at, why, and for the way lengthy.
This week’s video: “Drink About You” by means of Kate Nash
Let’s see. Hailee Steinfeld’s contribution to the Fifty Shades Freed soundtrack is in spite of everything right here: an overly vanilla pop music about shouting, carried out most commonly in a whisper. Makes no sense! The video is seashore and sheets. Sexy? Not actually! It’s simply roughly the imprecise concept of horny, plus sizzling crimson baked items and a few loopy BeDazzler paintings, which is precisely what I am hoping Fifty Shades Freed is like. Justin Timberlake’s “Man of the Woods” video is right here, as is his new album Man of the Woods, as is my 80th birthday. I suppose he actually did purchase a flannel blouse, which is one thing I’ll say to keep away from announcing anything else I will be able to get fired for. The Verge’s previous good friend Jamieson Cox reviewed the album over on Pitchfork and gave it a three.eight (out of 10!). I virtually choked to dying on my Cinnamon Toast Crunch:
“[T]here’s no refuge from the lyrics, which in many places engender the same mix of emotions you’d confront upon walking in on your parents having sex. Timberlake never quite oozed virility — he topped out somewhere around ‘Hollister model breaking bad’ — but this aspect of his persona has aged particularly poorly.”
Hollister type breaking unhealthy! Jamieson, I really like and omit you.
Some different track movies I watched this week: P!nk, Django Django, Suzy, that Target business starring Maren Morris, some other Paul Thomas Anderson factor with Haim. God, so dull. What have we performed to deserve being so bored? Just like ultimate week, my co-columnist Lizzie Plaugic is on holiday with her circle of relatives in Florida, texting me most effective sometimes about skincare and nail piercing. She might by no means come again. The solar might by no means pop out. Life is a slog. We have been so excited to look the finish of January that we forgot what comes after it.
Anyway, as a result of we’re now not but as doomed as we might be, Kate Nash launched a brand new music known as “Drink About You” these days.
Who is Kate Nash?
Kate Nash is a British singer-songwriter who seemed on the scene in 2007, right through the top of the “twee” aesthetic, and she or he performed into it even whilst turning it on its head.

She’s additionally a part of the forged of Netflix’s GLOW, the ‘80s wrestling melodrama that stored us from ourselves this summer season. This music is from her upcoming album Yesterday Was Forever, which she has described as her “teenage diary” album.
What’s particular about “Drink About You” by means of Kate Nash:
What’s particular is that our very best good friend is again. She is operating round the woods with two clones of herself, making a song about romantic obsession. Following in the footsteps of fellow angst-pop genius women Tove Styrke and Lorde, she plays this tribute to being uncareful with your individual middle whilst dolled up in a bizarro wedding ceremony get dressed.
What’s particular is “It’s only love but I think I taste blood.”
What’s particular is that Kate has long gone into the woods and are available out with one thing a long way higher than what J****n got here out with.
The “Drink About You” video used to be directed by means of Liz Nistico, very best referred to as one part of the indie-pop duo Holychild and for her “dear diary” column for V mag. Once, in her column, she stated, “I like writing letters to a lover who’ s forgotten me[.] I like feeling worthless and insignificant, then so powerful and perfect.” It’s particular that those two are buddies. I really like them.
