Jessie Ware’s Latest Video Makes No Sense, But That’s Okay
Jessie Ware is an ethereal and wistful British sprite who makes jams for young lovers. I played her first album, Devotion, into the ground. Her second, Tough Love, is a dreamy compilation of songs to make out to. This video, for “Champagne Kisses,” is a surreal, weird metaphor for what I think is the feeling of being deeply in love. Or, it’s just a bunch of really cool things, strung together, while Ms. Ware whisper-sings in her upper register whilst clad in an ochre turtleneck. It’s awesome.
