David Knight - 2nd Nov 2018

Adam Powell's video for The 1975's Love It If We Made It throws out chunks of memorable imagery: colourful silhouettes of the band performing juxtaposed with a blaze of footage of modern news events and its most notorious figures; then an anonymous boyband dancing and a succession of headshots of ordinary young people.  

This brief excursion into showing how modern life has never been more rubbish, and frightening, with snatches of visual wit and humanity. The excellent song comes from the forthcoming album A Brief Inquiry Into Online Relationships, out at the end of November.
