This is the music video for Overcome by UK soul singer Laura Mvula. I like the song and I enjoy her voice, but it’s really the video that grabbed and held me. Like the gorgeous Mvula herself, it’s all in shades of black and brown and gold, and it looks incredibly luxe and magnificently textured. I want to spend some time in that world!
Alex Southam directed the video. He describes it as a series of “active paintings with gold accents and beautiful brown bodies in motion.” Mission accomplished!
