Natalie Claro’s new single “Mountains” details the erratic and unpredictable intentions of this generation. It resonates with all, today’s society facing major authenticity issues and problems with genuinely showing kindness to one another. The video depicts a sarcastic “kids book” vibe, while the audience picks up on key hints that the song will derail this particular way of thinking. It progresses to get more immersive, and more elements of the unnerving things in this world come into play. The song is generally happy and upbeat, folk sounding, and extremely narrative along with the video. It’s an interesting and comprehensive video, yet it doesn’t leave too much to the imagination of listeners. It’s the perfect balance of interpretive and direct. Videos such as this one are the epitome of a progressive video, set to a coming-of-age story book feeling setting. Links to the video and artist below!
