Kaity Dunstan (aka Cloves) has come some way since her participation in the 2013 edition of Australia’s TV Show The Voice and her latest, Better Man, might just be her best yet. A classic torch song with some added power riffing, it was created with ex footballer Justin Parker who famously co-wrote Lana Del Rey’s breakthrough Video Games.
The video is all about two simple things. First Cloves’ raw soulful delivery. Second the lighting. A rotating light to symbolises her changing emotions. Sometimes music videos are stuffed full of so many ideas that the creativity deluge stops the effectiveness. There’s no such issue here.
Cloves plays Omeara in London (which seems to be getting all the best shows right now) on the 9th Feb and will be off supporting Michael Kiwanuka on his US tour in May and June.
