Samm Henshaw – How Does It Feel?

More… Bikes in Music Videos

Continuing with the Bikes in Music Videos theme, we’ve found a fresh new summer anthem for you…
Including lyrics such as “It goes timeline, swipe right, deep like”, the upbeat track looks into the ways in love is viewed in our culture today

‘How Does It Feel’ is guaranteed to be one that gets you moving, as Henshaw told Hot Press“I just really wanted to start a conversation on what love really is. We talk about love so much in society but are we truly living it?” Iniabasi Samuel Henshaw (born 22 February 1994), professionally known as Samm Henshaw, is a British singer, songwriter and record producer of Nigerian descent, signed to Columbia Records.

The video, directed by Taz Tron Delix (who has also worked on Declan McKenna’s ‘Humongous’ music video), has an aesthetically-pleasing retro feel to it. The low contrast, dramatic camera angles and zooms match the mood Henshaw creates with the soulful bluesy song.

 

Samm Henshaw – How Does It Feel? – Lyrics

[Intro]
How does it feel to be loved?

[Verse 1]
I just landed on this earth today
Heard people acting crazy over something strange
Brothers be paying for diamonds that they can’t afford
Just to keep up the appearance for a polaroid
All I see is something crazy I don’t understand
Ladies making babies just to keep a man
Fellas chasing Stellas when they got a Pam
They go from Stephanie to Bethany
From definitely to never be so

[Hook]
(How does it feel to be loved?)
Oh, how does it feel?
That’s what they say
Ooo, must be insane, oh yeah
(How does it feel to be loved?)
Somebody has gotta tell me, oh yeah

[Verse 2]
It goes time right, swipe right
Deep like five times
Don’t know what it sounds like
But someone told me it’s a little Marvin with some candle light
A little ocean on the weekend with a can of Sprite
I mean I love ’em white
Ooo, love is such a mystery
I’m so perplexed by all the things my eyes have let me see
People think that love is things like physicality
When in reality it’s meant to hold you down like gravity

[Hook]
(How does it feel to be loved?)
How does it feel to be loved?
That’s what they say
Oh my, must be insane, oh yeah
(How does it feel to be loved?)
How does it feel, how does it feel? Yeah

[Bridge]
You see now
How am I supposed to find love?
If I don’t understand love
How am I supposed to be loved? ooh
And if I have to buy love
Then I don’t really want love
If this is what it means
The fighting and the screams
You want dependency
I need some therapy, oh
(How does it feel to be loved?)
I gotta know, I ain’t too sure
Somebody tell me how does it feel to be loved?

[Hook]
(How does it feel to be loved?)
I just wanna know, yeah
I just gotta know, yeah
How does it feel?
How does it feel to be loved?
Oh my
(How does it feel to be loved?)

She Makes War : Slow Puncture

With all the melancholia that the title suggests, I kinda like it.

She, equirrelling around London on a bike, gathering trinkets in her basket she rides past confused Storm Troopers and takes you on a tour of street art in East London.

A magical bicycle treasure hunt around the street art of East London…and some STORMTROOPERS.

Directed & Edited by Laura Kidd.

Rad Intro HD ‘Break The Ice’ by John Farnham

If you didn’t grow up the 80’s there’s a chance you’ve never used the word RAD! Or heard of the film, TV show… Back then, there wasn’t a better word for it!

The film’s story focuses on Cru Jones (Bill Allen), a young BMX racer who lives in a small town with his mother (Talia Shire) and sister. Cru is faced with a tough decision: the qualifying races for Helltrack are the same day as his SATs, which he must take in order to attend college. However, winning Helltrack means a lucrative sponsorship deal and fame. Cru chooses the latter option, ignoring his mother’s wishes.

Here’s the opening credits

Interested, Want more… Take a look at this amazing trailer, if there’s one thing that’ll stoke your imagination this is how it all started back in “the day” as your Dad (or Mum) might say…
