Welcome to TWIB’s Weekly Top 10 Videos. This is a segment where we will be looking at some exceptional visuals from various acts from around the globe. The music video format has been around for decades and through the 90s and 2000s, it has really taken flight from multi-million budget music videos, to mid to low-budget videos with exceptional features. In this section, we will not discriminate but rather highlight some of the creative visuals that pop up on our radar.
Again, we promise to bring you the best from high to low budget, to animated to DIY and first and foremost, the most creative visuals we can source.

Brittany provides a soothing chorus as well. The visual style has that throwback feel and blends energetic performances with subtle storyboarding.
Zoe Ko – “Pink Noise”
Singer/songwriter Zoe Ko caught our eyes and ears with the cinematic visuals for her single “Pink Noise”. The track has a bright guitar lick, punchy drum groove and rich textures underpinned by her unapologetic demeanour and engaging melodic runs. Here, she talks about the challenges women have faced over different generations and brings it to the fore with a new unbridled energy that breaks the societal norm and overblown stereotypes of womanhood. The visuals by Nikoli Partiyeli borrow elements from the 2007 British comedy St. Trinian, the classic horror flick Carrie and viewers get to see Zoe Ko in her element as she embodies the spirit of feminine excellence when she takes on the system with her all-girl squad.

Lex Leosis‘ new visual “Minor Setback” is a heartfelt and solemn tune that explores the downsides of life and how one must keep hope regardless of the situation surrounding us. Over the mellow and sombre backdrop, Lex reflects on the daily struggles and the effects of gentrification and the rising cost of living and how the experiences made her into who she is today.
