Flinty harmonies will send chills down your back when Love Me in the Dark start to sing, and you can feel the landscape rushing by on this perfect road trip song. And the video’s gorgeous and sometimes whimsical footage carries the song’s intention to a “t.”
Imagine you are on a road trip through the American West, under an endless sky. You’re flying down the road with your lover in a cool vintage automobile with your hands out the window, carving through the air. That is the feeling Love Me in the Dark is trying to convey with their song “Riding Wind,” from their debut album also entitled Love Me in the Dark. The video features the breathtaking photography and cinematography of Seanie Blue, and stars Icelandic muse Maya Nelson Wolfsdottir. — Steve McCormick
