Brandon Flowers follows up “Can’t Deny My Love” with his cheery new video for “Still Want You.”
Brandon Flowers released his music black & white music video for “Still Want You.”
The latest clip off his new record, “The Desired Effect,” is a far cry from his first vid for “Can’t Deny My Love.” This time, Flowers ditches the storyline for a simplistic Gap commercial-esque treatment for the cheery mid-tempo bopper.
The concept for “Still Want You” matches the happy tone of the song; hence why copious amounts of handography, winking and bopping is seen throughout the Warren Fu-directed music video.
It just might be the radio friendly hit Flowers wants to play on our airwaves, but it could be a bit weird for him. He tells NME:
“I want to be on the radio,” Flowers said. “I’ve never been ashamed to say that. I can’t believe where radio has gone. It seems to be such a weird world now. Where once I seemed to fit in, now I’m seen as a little different. I used to be considered mainstream, but now I’m almost avant-garde or art rock compared to what’s on the radio.”
He adds, “There has always been pop music, but it can speak to you too, you know? I think we’re walking a line on my new record, and hopefully we’ve found a place where there’s sophistication to it but it also feels accessible.”
