It’s that time of the year when summer videos are flooding the channels, both on TV and online. Whether its artistic shots of sunny skylines or vibrant party scenes, artists are looking to show you just how much they are making of the summer months. Below, TRAPPED bring you 3 of the best:
Rizzle Kicks – Tell Her
“And I’m waiting for a chance, baby us to cross our paths.”
This soul infused track from Rizzle Kicks has a great summer feel and has a fantastically themed video to match (well technically there’s two!) One was a collaboration with Evian and featured Maria Sharapova playing tennis with the lads and is a great watch. The main video has the guys driving remote control cars/planes and showcases a sunny British summer.
Clean Bandit feat. Stylo G – Come Over
“You better make time to put pen to paper…”
Clean Bandit have been going from strength to strength this year and this track reinforces that fact. Hooking up with dancehall veteran Stylo G, they deliver a song which takes you away to a sunny beach and has a stylistic video to match. With a variety of locations, the video just makes you wish you were on holiday!
Sox – Birmingham to Ibiza
“Put your hands in the air if you’ve come to drink champagne and not Ribena!”
Sox is back with this Preditah produced party track which will definitely get you moving. The video documents Sox, along with Jammer and crew, making the trip to Ibiza and partying the only way they know how. Featuring cameos from Maxsta, Layzee and a number of bikini babes, Sox has made another stamp on the UK Grime scene with a catchy, feel good tune.
LEIKEL47 – F**k The Summer Up
“I was born royal, so I dont give a f**k about a crown or throne.”
We came across this track totally by accident and have not been able to get it off repeat since. Hailing from Brooklyn, LEIKEL47 comes with furious lyrics over an intense beat which you cant help move to. By stating her intention to f**k the summer up, she delivers a video full of ski masks, chopper bicycles and water pistols, enjoy!
