Adri: For this Music Monday, I'm going with a song that came out a while ago, and when I first listened to it, I hoped that it would get a music video. The song is Venus Fly by Grimes featuring Janelle Monáe. I was already stoked when Grimes started releasing videos for songs off of her Art Angels album (like World Princess Part ll). However, I was even more stoked when the music video for Venus Fly was released just a few days ago. The song is so interesting and all I can say is that the music video was worth the wait.
Breana: Yes, I'm totally going to comment on this one. I wholeheartedly agree with Adri. Venus Fly is one of my favorite songs and I'm really glad that it got a music video. I mean, it features two of my favorite artists: Grimes and Janelle Monáe. It's creative, colorful, and fun to watch. The way it was filmed created an amazing result. If this was a movie, I'd totally see it.
Breana: I really only have one song to share this week, and that’s Don’t Wanna Fight by Alabama Shakes. Don’t Wanna Fight is an amazing song, I love everything about it. The feel of it is the epitome of blues with a hint of rock to the sound. Brittany Howard’s vocals are powerful and soulful, that’s the only way I can describe her voice. I really had a hard time deciding which version of the song I wanted to share—they’re both equally fantastic. In the end, I decided on the live version, which you can check out below.
