As a prelude to the upcoming album, “Inside out,” here is an excellent new video/single from Tigers Craving Stars called “Missouri Loves Company.” The song features light hip hop that flows smoothly and is accentuated by some beautiful backup vocals from a talented young singer, Daniela Andrade. Both the production quality and the acting in the video are superb, even though I can’t say I have any idea what the theme is, but I prefer the abstract nature of it over other videos that leave nothing to curiosity and imagination. It features a seemingly unhappy child dancer/ballerina/ beauty pageant type girl in some dysfunctional family situations, presumably dealing with the pressures adults put on the girl to be beautiful and talented, and then later there is a scene with some young women eating froyo.
These artists have some real potential, and I’m looking forward to seeing and hearing more from them. They have a serious yet light and unassuming style that let’s the story do the talking.
