It’s gotta be a pretty amazing song to create not just one great music video for it, but two. “Letters From The Sky” by Civil Twilight, off their self-titled debut album “Civil Twilight”, is just that: an absolutely amazing song. What strikes me about their first video for the song is the shear simplicity of it. It’s all about lighting and composition, with a dark brooding build-up of drama. I wish it was in HD to fully appreciate the incredible photography. The second video also has a really simple concept and beautiful execution with the use primarily of natural light. Both characters in the narrative of this video are appealing on camera and I love how the camera lingers on them.
I’ll let these 2 music videos and the still images from them say the rest. Pure photographic and emotional poetry. Enjoy the music and the visuals.
