Video: Lemonade - "Orchid Bloom"
I'm a sucker for upbeat sounding songs with a darker underbelly, and this track off Lemonade's recently release Minus Tide is a perfect example.
On the video for "Orchid Bloom," that sentiment is captured pretty perfectly, as we are shown the perspective of a troubled and lonely individual remembering happier times as he stumbles through New York City streets, clubs, and subways. It evokes a frenetic feeling with a certain emotional heaviness. Your body might be at the party but your mind is in the past and your heart is in the gutter.
