Video Review: Harry Styles – Adore You

Harry Styles drops fairy tale like video for new single ‘Adore You’
We are only one week away from the release of the long awaited sophomore album by Harry Styles. The former One Direction singer has treated us to the singles ‘Lights Up’ and ‘Watermelon Sugar’, which he both performed live at Saturday Night Live recently. It is time for one more single before the album drops and Harry and his team opted for the track ‘Adore You’. There is a beautiful music video that comes with it which is easily his biggest yet!

The video, directed by Dave Meyers and narrated by Spanish pop star Rosalía, tells the story of ‘the boy’ (played by mr. Styles of course) who lives on the fictional island of Eroda, where everyone in the fisherman’s village only frowns. The boy is born with a bright smile that blinds everyone, so he has to learn how to not smile. He becomes quite the loner until he surprisingly finds a friend in a… fish! You would not expect it, but the interaction between Styles and his new buddy is actually adorable to watch and the whole video is just beautifully made. Without giving away any of the clue, the story rounds up nicely towards the end and Styles is the star of every scene. He might have turned down the role of Prince Eric in The Little Mermaid, but he still got his own little fairy tale here!

And what about the song? Fine Line is shaping up to be an excellent pop record, because all three singles so far are exciting in their own way. ‘Adore You’ might actually be the most radio friendly of the three so far, with a funky little bass line and soaring vocals in the chorus. This track is catchy upon first listen and the production swings seductively. More of this next week please!
