Video Of The Day: Mumford And Sons – Babel

Mumford And Sons Yes I know It’s Mumford And Sons, yes I know this video will be everywhere but that’s not the point of these kinds of posts. I want to celebrate the medium of the music video done well rather than music video for the sake of music video (they can often feel a … Continue reading

Video Of The Day: Dear Reader – Took Them Away

Took Them Away Dear Reader have worked with multi award winner Rob Savage to produce this beautiful video for the track Took Them Away. It isn’t just for the way the video so carefully marries together with the lyrics that this is my chosen video for today. Also for the stunning use of light and … Continue reading

Video Of The Day: Waylayers – S.O.S

Waylayers It should be of little surprise to you all, by now, that we pick Waylayers for video of the day because we’ve been featuring them on and off for years now. It’s even more of a pleasure to give them this because the video for single S.O.S is based on one of my favourite … Continue reading

Video Of The Day: Sinkane – Warm Spell (NSFW)

Sinkane Another not really suitable for work video gets the video of the day slot at Popped. It’s not gratuitous nudity though as you’ll see. This video is exceptionally beautifully shot and works so well with the song that I can’t imagine anything else. The video is the work of Director Philip Di Fiore and … Continue reading

Video Of The Day: Foals – Late Night (EXPLICIT NSFW)

Foals There haven’t been many explicit videos that have graced our site and never one that made it to video of the day but here there isn’t just explicit imagery used for the sake of being explicit and that makes a huge difference. Working with award winning director Nabil has given Foals the opportunity to … Continue reading

Video Of The Day: Steven Wilson – The Raven That Refused To Sing

Steven Wilson Well there are music videos and there are short films/animations that more than bring a song to life, this is certainly one of the latter. It’s just lovely. OK so it might all be a bit on the slow and long side but it is an investment of your time I assure you. … Continue reading

Video Of The Day: Of Monsters And Men – King And Lionheart

Of Monsters And Men Following on from the wonderfully fantastical fantasy video of Little Talks, Of Monsters And Men continue along the theme working once again with director team WeWereMonkeys. The video is for the forthcoming single, King And Lionheart, which will be released on March 4th through Island Records. There really isn’t much more … Continue reading

Video Of The Day: Bastille – Pompeii

Bastille The thing about Bastille creator/frontman Dan Smith is that he and I have similar obsessions; music and film. It’s clear from the video of Pompeii that he has clear styles that he likes too. Having found an interest in horror films from a young age Dan went on to enjoy European cinema, later moving … Continue reading

Video Of The Day: The Staves – Winter Trees

The Staves One of the cutest, cleverest and stylistically perfectly matched videos I have seen in a while. The directors for Winter Trees are Karni and Saul who come from the Oscar-winning animation studio, Aardman Studios (and I think that shows). Winter Trees is taken from The Stave’s debut album Dead & Born & Grown, … Continue reading

Video Of The Day: To Kill A King – Cold Skin

Cold Skin If you are a regular visitor you might see that one of my favourite things about music videos is that not just the way it compliments a song but the way a clever video can tell a story in as much time as a full feature length film might and this video certainly … Continue reading

Video Of The Day: Embers – Part Of The Echos

Embers We introduced you to this wonderful four piece from Manchester only last week and since then they have been plastered all over the internet, as they should be, sold out of their self released single, and have released the second video. When you watch the video for Part Of The Echos you’ll know exactly … Continue reading

Video Of The Day: The Lumineers – Ho Hey (Live)

The Lumineers This is the first time we’ve had a live video of the day and it’s the whole shakey hand live video too. I just love the atmosphere from it and of course the song (Ho Hey – you might have seen it on the advert for The Silver Linings Playbook film!) This is … Continue reading

Video Of The Day: The Joy Formidable – This Ladder Is Ours

The Joy Formidable Loving the fact that this video for This Ladder Is Ours has a Western film feel to it, not just that though, loving the track too of course. The Joy Formidable are also releasing their second album (finally!) on January 21st, entitled Wolf’s Law and have some tour dates too for you … Continue reading

Video Of The Day: Beach House – Wild

Beach House This brilliantly visual feast for Beach House’s track Wild, taken from their recent album Bloom, was directed by film maker Johan Renck (Breaking Bad, The Walking Dead, Madonna and The Knife). Not only is it great to watch but you can just listen and be equally as happy with your decision to have … Continue reading

Video Of The Day: Florence + The Machine – Lover To Lover

Florence + The Machine The emotions that come packaged up in this track required a certain kind of video and I think that director Vince Haycock has hit the nail on the head with this one. It’s murky and sad and not only that but shows that not only is Florence a talent for what … Continue reading
