Welcome to FACT’s weekly video round-up.
As we note at the end of every year, music videos have never been better. But too often, music videos — along with documentaries, live sets and interview clips — get lost in the shuffle of news and new music.
With that in mind, FACT is doing what it does for mixes, mixtapes, vinyl and more: rounding up the internet’s best videos on a weekly basis. And to remove our bias, we won’t be including our own content — you’ll have to stay tuned to FACT TV for all your Against The Clock, FACT Freestyles and Confessions needs.

Dir: Thomas Rhazi
A couple’s entire relationship — from dating to domesticity to dissolution — plays out in this stunning three and a half minute video that’s “shot” entirely in a car during an atmospheric free fall.
Dir: Jesse Kanda
Revisiting a technique he used in an Arca video, Jesse Kanda shoots a clip in and around Björk’s mouth, in all its pink, visceral glory.
Zebra Katz x Leila
Dir: Florian Pochlatko
Zebra Katz and Leila bring Nu Renegade to life with this three-song/three-part short film. First, Katz is a preacher in an underground church as a prophet-dancer makes his way through the congregation; they then head to a club night and reunite in the choreographed conclusion.
‘In The Night’
In his latest video, The Weeknd recruits model-girlfriend Bella Hadid for a late night adventure that bounds from neo-noir to VHS snuff, with a premium on neon and strobe lights.
Dir: MC & Diamond Martel
Miley reunites with Diane Martel and plays a giant baby in ‘BB Talk’, a video complete with diapers, baby onesies and a baby bottle bong.
Dir: Rony Alwin
Azealia Banks revisits ‘Count Contessa’, a 2013 song that samples Lone’s ‘Aquamarine’, in this lighthearted, gently-psychedelic beach video.
DJ Holiday feat. Young Thug
The clip for ‘Everyday’ outpaces similar rap videos thanks to a scene-stealing performance by Young Thug, playful graphics and eye-catching imagery, like those videos girls in gas masks in front of the American flag.
GROVESTREET & Organ Tapes
‘To Find Where Ur Tru Image…’
Dir: Tim Zha and Rob Venning
This fog-cutting collaboration by GROVESTREET and Organ Tapes has been given an equally eery video, where multiple “screens” come together in a simultaneous collage heavy on urban anxiety.
