Noah Cyrus Shines In Jake Bugg’s Stylish “Waiting” Video
One of the new releases that got lost in the rush of New Music Friday (for me, at least) was the video for Jake Bugg and Noah Cyrus’ “Waiting.” A highlight of the British alt-rocker’s recent Hearts That Strain album, the duet has a raw soulfulness that stands out among the gentle Americana of songs like “How Soon The Dawn” and “Southern Rain.” That quality is captured perfectly by the black-and-white visual, which was filmed at Skinny’s Lounge — a classic diva bar in Los Angeles.
The concept couldn’t be more simple. It’s just Jake and Noah at a piano, performing the song. However, the clip is lit like a film noir from the ’40s and both artists shine in the stylish surroundings. The “Make Me (Cry)” diva is really on tear — following up her breakthrough hit with underrated summer anthem “Stay Together” and XXXTENTACION-assisted banger “Again.” This duet shows off another facet of her talent and is yet another reason to get excited for her upcoming debut LP, NC-17. Watch up top.
