Gossling's Wild Love Video

A couple of weeks ago I posted the audio of Gossling's new single and declared it my new obsession. well, nothing's changed. If anything "Wild Love" has grown on me even more. This is easily one of the best songs of 2012 and deserves to be massive. The leap from indie darling to mainstream pop sensation is never easy but an arresting video definitely helps. See Kimbra's "Settle Down" for a recent example. Unfortunately, Gossling's visual isn't quite of that calibre. It's definitely cute and quirky - I love all the yarn and the twist at the end - but it seems a little underdone. The lighting is particularly unflattering and it takes far too long to get going. An epic song like this needed something more dazzling and dramatic. Anyway, "Wild Love" remains sublime and I've already pre-ordered my copy of the EP - signed, no less! - from JB Hi-Fi. Check out the video below.
