With fast paced songs like Live My Life and Like A G6, it’s hard to imagine electronic-pop band Far East Movement (FEM) slowing things down and giving us something more serious. In their Little Bird music video (featuring Feist on vocals), FEM delivers just that and gives us all something hauntingly poetic.
The video basically tells the story of FEM’s Kev Nish attempting an intervention of his on-screen girlfriend’s drug addiction. Kev had said that the concept behind the video was inspired by real-life experiences that he had with a former girlfriend. “[Little Bird] is the metaphor for everyone's desire to always search for more, sometimes not realizing that what you might be looking for is right in front of you,” he elaborated.
I find the video concept to be extremely fitting to the song. It’s not very often that we get to see FEM get serious and venture below the surface of just partying and having a good time. So, this video really is a nice break from what I’ve seen from FEM. In fact, I think this is the best video I’ve seen from them-one with more substance to it as well!
Don’t take my word for it though, watch the music video for Little Bird and see for yourself!
