Today’s Friday Video Pick is a new piece from Brooklyn rock band Bear in Heaven. With a voice that carries like the singing of Christopher Cross, lead singer Jon Philpot creates a modern take on synth-driven rock. The video for “Reflection of You” consists of a series of rapid zoom-in shots (the dizzy- or seizure-prone may wish to avoid it), and a neon background peppered with flashing lights is contemporary awesomeness at its best.
Also of note is the album cover from which the track hails. To say it was inspired by Trapper Keeper design is presumptuous, but not mentioning its Trapper Keeper look would be ridiculous. ’80s art motifs abound in this colorful cover, and its over-the-top look is the ultimate in retro cheekiness. Enjoy today’s video, and Happy Friday:
