Initial song ideas for a video – Mini pitch

The song I have chosen to pitch to my group for our music video is gorgeous by Slowthai. I chose this song because I feel like there are multiple ways I could go about making the music video for this song. I also think the song is quite versatile in terms of making a music video for it.

Gorgeous lyrics:
Slowthai
Your face, look at you
You’re gorgeous, gorgeous
Your face, look at you
You’re gorgeous, gorgeous
Your face, look at you
You’re gorgeous, gorgeous
Your face, look at you
You’re gorgeous, gorgeous
Confused, overanalysed
Bow tie and I always been categorised
Casual like nothing really matters, like
Mistakes I made, take a second try
Take bikes and ride ’til it won’t ride
Burn it out, it’s mad how time flies
In the fire, my life well highlight
Marley at the scores, phone box for a draw
Number one to my doors, sixteen go to brook
Check drew go form where I first bun a zoot
Southfields check so I get a bike and it’s got
Toby field getting chased and we off
Blackthorn I first got locked
Two Z’s of cheese, never seen it before
Thought we had straps, five cars on us
Five man deep and we all in cuffs like
Five man deep and we all in cuffs
Five man deep and we all in, all in
Five man deep and we all in cuffs
Five man deep and we all in, like
Five man deep and we all in cuffs
Five man deep and we all in, all in
Five man deep and we all in
Five man deep and we all in
Bob shot hot rocks in my joggers
Went boxing but I’m not no boxer
Northampton, yeah man I’m a cobbler
A time in my life, man, I went church
Air rifle for the pigeons on the verge
New life flats, we were all flying birds
Moulton got terrorised
When I went Spring Boroughs and the pub got turnt
Lewis Del Mar, man, I miss my bros
Windoff thing tryna take their souls
Demanded they wouldn’t let him out the cell
But I’m haps he’s alive, he’s alive and well
Shoutout the people up-up north for real
Shoutout Jalil for the future ain’t real
Know where I live, you know you get
You know you get, you know you get, shilled
Five man deep and we all in cuffs
Five man deep and we all in, all in
Five man deep and we all in cuffs
Five man deep and we all in, like
Five man deep and we all in cuffs
Five man deep and we all in, all in
Five man deep and we all in
Five man deep and we all in
Used to stash food at Amy’s
Chill, have a spliff, walk Jasper
Lost a dog, drunk on vodka
Responsibility another chapter
I’ll do it plain-face, so obvious
Oblivious to a consequence
Never anonymous, known in my post code
Pit bike and a crossbow
You can get snookered at cue club
Banging on the window
Doubled up now, you’re losing fifth bet deep
I begs you, don’t get lured in
Never had a mortgage, buy my house outright
Been the same since Game Boys and stick fights
Stabilize push-bikes, for your shineys jump off the push-bike
Tony jacked my Yu-Gi-Oh cards
I’ll allow him, he’s a shook guy.
After choosing my song I made a word cloud filled with how the song makes me feel or think of when I hear it. I did this to help me get an overall idea of how the music video should look.
Narrative: I would  include some of the activities talked about in the song as well as some that suit the sound of the song. I would not choose to give the video a story.
Performance: For this song I would have a 18 year old performing it wearing some traditional British garments to keep the themes of the song and video consistent as well as making sure the words look right coming from the performer.
What the song is about: The song is a nostalgic take on growing up British referencing many things a lot of us experienced in youth.
