Without a doubt, these are the five greatest music videos from the past seven days. Are they the greatest music videos of all time? Probably not, but you will see plenty of dancing and fall madly in love with a rainbow-coloured fish. Not a bad way to end the week.



5. GABI - 'Falling' (dir. Allie Avital Tsypin)

Directed by Allie Avital Tsypin (synonymous with BANGS), video takes you out to a hill in some countryside where the wind is blowing, the colours are washed out, and well-styled dancers move to exceptionally kinetic choreography – all normal at first, until the sun starts to set and an inescapable nightmarish frenzy sets in: the perfect visual treatment to the unsettling experimental sounds in the song.



4. Lydia Ainsworth - 'White Shadows' (dir. Tara Dougans)

'White Shadows' was directed and animated by Tara Dougans, who says this about her creation:

"The video serves as a 4 minute visual response to Lydia's composition. Rather than work with narrative, the focus was to create an interplay with the song – something akin to the invisible dance that takes place within the subconscious mind as an underlying energy takes shape and begins to grow. A dance because the evolution of an idea (a shadow) is often non-linear, traveling miles intuitively up from the depths in trust before suddenly arriving into light."



3. Chance The Rapper - 'Sunday Candy' (dir. Austin Veseley)

The Austin Veseley-directed clip features theatre sets, intricate choreographies, and much more. Simply wonderful.



2. Janelle Monáe and Jidenna - 'Yoga'

I'm tired just watching this.



1. Caribou - 'Can't Do Without You' (dir. Lorenzo Fonda)

This video is genuinely lovely. It's for Caribou's stunner 'Can't Do Without You' and in some symbolic way represents the sentiment of the track: closeness, love, soulmateness. Specifically, the video features a little boy with a giant rainbow-coloured fish – a huge colourful puppet that flies around with him as he runs about the place, mainly in slow-motion (the slower, the more poignant), a physical manifestation of having a deep emotional connection with someone – or something – the bright colours representing the joy of such a relationship.

But perhaps the almost mythical, unbelievable nature of the fish itself (and the way it disappears mysteriously at the end) symbolises a certain fantasy element present in the oft-impossible search for one's place in the world beside a human being who loves you as much as you love them.

On a lighter note: you can win the fish. You could actually own it. Perfect for summer. Please go to Caribou's site for details on how to get your hands on this beauty.
