Black Kids - In A Song

Eighties inspired band Black Kids hits fans with a simple dreamy video for "In A Song". While the disco balls and blue/pink theme add a retro feeling, light plays one the the biggest roles in this musical visual. Throughout the video, there are dim flashes adding incredible dimension with limited set design as the band plays in a house setting. We also see a lot of shifting focus with soft lighting evoking that warm tenderness visually that love can make one feel. Very fitting for a tune singing of how the feeling of love can't only be told in a song.

Black Kids was formed in Jacksonville, Florida with Reggie Youngblood on guitar and vocals, Ali Youngblood and Dawn Watley on keyboards and back up vocals, Owen Holmes on bass, and Kevin Snow on drums. Reggie and Ali are brother and sister having met the other members at Sunday school. If you love The Cure, you'll love this indie/alternative band!
