I love the song. I was looking forward to the video. The video is out. I am not sure I care for it. Very strong story line, I love the band and practically all elements in the video except for two key things:
The picture quality of the video for a very strong song, in my view, doesn’t cut it. However, I do think that can be excused. However, it is hard to excuse the styling for the lead singer Duncan Daniels! Duncan what where you thinking with the styling? Especially given your statement, ““Blindly in love” . . . is a story in which both music and visual events are very instrumental in portraying the message behind the song, they cannot be fully appreciated one without the other, only as a full package does the message impact the listening viewer.”
You have a strong story line and a series of events that effectively depict the story but you, the lead character and singer, show up in an attire that forgets you are selling and marketing this story to the world. Also, given this is a re-introduction of yourself and your genre of music ‘rock and roll,’ you needed to come strong. You gotta come really strong than what you just served up. Everything has to be tight. Suggestions:
1. Tune into your body type;
2. Find a stylist who understands your body type and genre of music that can style you accordingly.
The big gold chain, really? I won’t even touch the other pieces of clothing you have on. The image of you singing with the band and how you are styled would have worked better. Amazing song. I really love the vocals, the lyrics et al. Now let the visuals of the lead character match and make it memorable in a positive way. I would re-shoot this. American produced music videos should be on par if not better than those shot in Nigeria, especially if you plan to send this off to television networks et. al. in Nigeria/Africa.
