IAN SWEET – “#23″ Video

Band To Watch IAN SWEET are releasing their debut album in a few weeks, and today they’ve shared a video for early single “#23,” which we named one of the best songs of the week when it came out last month. In the vid, frontperson Jilian Medford hangs out at a Brooklyn basketball court and makes her way to the Coney Island boardwalk and beach, wearing all-white and contemplatively exploring. “I wanted to represent a sort of non-human figure (dressed in all white) interacting with something non-human as well (the basketball) in a very human setting (Coney Island and a public basketball court),” Medford explained to NPR. It’s a striking video, which was directed by Eleanor Petry, and you should watch it below.
