As the music industry’s economic decline continues, one of the trademarks of the old guard has suffered tremendously from the drop-off in funding: the music video. Still, it’s an incredibly exciting time to be a music video artist, as the costs of production grow lower and the possibilities presented by technology expand. Regardless, stark beauty often wins the day and San Francisco based electro-pop band Birds & Batteries’ clip for “Be My Girl” certainly adheres to this logic. Director James Sharpe describes the video:

“Using the human body as a canvas, I wanted to create a beautiful and haunting visual narrative portraying a conflict between nature, architecture and the body, ultimately representing love and acceptance, whatever the imperfections.”
