Music Video Review
All Time Low - "Nice2KnoU"
Written by: Lexie
Need a pick-me-up to get through the rest of the week? Maybe All Time Low's new music video "Nice2KnoU" is just the perk you need!
Considering the song itself, this song is lighthearted in how it recognizes the inability to return to the past, but also the value of reminiscing. The lyrics express returning to old ways "one last time for old time's sake," which seems to convey a particular fondness for the past, but also a contentment with the present. Pairing with the song's sentimental lyrical content, the buoyant music is encouraging of good times.
The video is -- appropriately --vibrant and vivacious -- full of color and energy. It features the band performing the track in a brightly-lit setting, as well as contrasting (but still artistic) black-and-white shots of the band. These opposing color schemes seem to represent the separation, and coming together, of the past and present. While we may miss our past, we are free to revisit it and revive it if we wish -- something that can be exciting and enlivening.
Overall, the piece is upbeat and fun, earning it a 7 out of 10! If you haven't seen the video for yourself yet, head on over to Fueled By Ramen's official YouTube and let us know what YOU think!
