Watch: Amos Lee's visions of white in 'Flower' music video
New single features No. 1 album-maker's strong pipes
It was kind of hard to fathom it, when Amos Lee came out withÂ a No. 1-selling album "Mission Bell" on The Billboard 200 earlier this year. Granted, sales required for a No. 1 aren't what they used to be, and it marked a record low, but then again, how many No. 1 albums do you have, chump?
Anyway, it's easy to see why people like the New York singer-songwriter, particularly with the light feather new "Flower," the video to which dropped this week.
I was a big fan of initial single "Windows Are Rolled Down." There's something so harmless about his soul songs and unfiltered acoustic guitar. "Flower" would be largely unforgivable for that meh-inducing first line, "My heart is like a flower / That blooms every hour / I believe in the power / Of love," were it not for the strength in its melody.Â
Its accompanying clip is equally hate-melting, with an adventure in white-wash and paper folding. Lee may not be impressed with how he's portrayed on paper, but the story takes it time and lays back, just like the track does.
