LAURA MVULA’S “GREEN GARDEN” VIDEOPosted BY JORDAN ON February 20th, 2013
My friend Casey just sent me an email with this video, subject line reading, “obsessed.” Obviously, I’m not one to delay pleasure, so I watched it on my phone for about 5 seconds (after the ad, duh), until I knew this deserved more than 4×2 inch screen. Now that I’ve graduated to my computer, I’m totally hooked. Her name’s Laura Mvula, and the video is for her song “Green Garden,” which was just released on January 13th. Her album, “Song to the Moon,” will be out March 4th, but in the meantime, check out this video. Sonically, it’s more interesting than your standard pop, with great, clean layers and harmonies weaved throughout the tune. It’s smooth and upbeat, and wants to make you move, which is fine by me. Visually, “Green Gardens” is a total vacation. Enjoy!
