Our latest video of the week betrays the fact that I’m a sucker for beautifully shot performance pieces. Directed by music video veteran Tabitha Denholm, Grace Mitchell’s “NoLo” has the kind of whimsical energy that you’ll either love or hate. Naturally, I lean more towards the ‘love’ camp, and after one spin of this video, I’m sure you will too.

Visually, “NoLo” carries a natural, almost vérité feel that no doubt accounts for much of its endearing quality, while Mitchell’s naked charm is wisely placed front and centre by virtue of her performance. There’s a dreamy feel to the piece that’s made all the more vivid by its urban setting. And sure, the song is as pop as they come, but that’s nothing to be sniffed at when the pop itself is this pure. Dillon M. Banda
