Conceptually, Oren Lavie‘s “Her Morning Elegance” is one of the coolest, most unique videos out this year. An obvious dream-scape, one could imagine a similar theme in a Michel Gondry flick; it’s artsy but not so over the top as to be pretentious. Made entirely using bedroom props — sheets, clothes, pillows — the directors (Oren Lavie, Yuval and Merav Nathan) paint a vivid storyline that simply must be witnessed to believe. Lavie’s soft-spoken vocals, draped with a very Erland Ã˜ye-like backing electro-acoustic sound, make his music quite accessible and easily likable.
“Her Morning Elegance” is off Lavie’s The Opposite Side Of The Sea, available now from your standard retailers.
