The Best Music Videos Of 2017
We round up the best music videos of 2017 including 'New Rules' and 'Humble.'

Kygo (real name Kyrre Gørvell-Dahll) has a knack for making wildly depressing music videos. “It Ain’t Me” documented a near-death experience, while “Stargazing” went a step further and ended in a funeral. The latter was particularly effective, capturing the bittersweet dreaminess of the song. The visual for “Stranger Things” is similarly on the money. A collaboration with OneRepublic, the track stands out as one of the most anthemic on the Norwegian’s recently-released Kids In Love LP.

It’s about wanting more than you have and the video (above) captures that longing for a better life by shining a light on a couple of down-on-their-luck lovers. Tired of their menial jobs, this non-violent Bonnie & Clyde decide to get a taste of the high life by breaking into mansions. Unfortunately, things don’t go to plan and there’s a very unhappy ending. Kygo is about to embark on the Kids In Love Tour, which kicks off in Helsinki, Finland on February 5 and then crisscrosses Europe, before hitting North America in May.
