Video Of The Day: "Second Hand Lovers" by Oren Lavie

Hey guys!

Music videos - they're incredibly important and they don't get enough recognition.

We've become a society that is so fast paced, that it takes a lot for us to just sit down and spend three to five minutes to focus on a visual piece of art.

Of course, of course, I know you can't generalize humanity - this is just an observation.
Even I'm guilty of it.

But there are those videos that just deserve all of our attention, simply because they are beautiful, expressive and will make you think.

So that's why we're here to present you another VOTD - not only do we hope you're going to enjoy it, but actually we are sure you will.

"Second Hand Lovers" by Oren Lavie

Oren Lavie is a musician from Tel Aviv, Israel.

His music is inspired by literatur and classical composers which leads to very elegant sounds, labeling Oren's music as Alternative. 

The musician started writing songs before he even learned how to play the piano, which is now his main musical companion.
You could consider his career a very organic process as one thing led to the other.

At the age of 22, Oren spent a lot of time in London where he studied theater, wrote and directed multiple plays and also write the music for them.
He also lived in New York, Berlin and Los Angeles.

Besides writing plays and music, he also published a children's book and wrote music for the film "Narnia: Prince Caspian".

In May 2017 he released a brand new album - "Bedroom Crimes". All songs were recorded on his own piano and the record was produced by Oren himself.

"Second Hand Lovers" as a song, is an incredible piece of art itself.
The elegant strings, the softly humming acoustic guitar and Oren's raspy but calm vocals, all create a beautiful scene. If one thing, this song makes you want to lay down and watch the clouds pass by.

The music video is just as stunning and might leave you speechless.
Oren won the award for Best Music Video at the Miami Short Film Festival last year before the video was even released.

As soon as you press play, you will dive into the world of Oren Lavie.

His music paired with his visuals create a powerful and expressive package, winning you over with depth and endless creativity.
The way the video is directed and shot shows you just how much thought and effort was put into it.

We honestly recommend watching the video and let it enchant you.
