Video of The Day: Ari Roar

There's a bunch of videos out there. Some of them are good. Some of them are a cut above. I like to think my picks for Video of The Day are a cut (or two) above.

The more I hear from Ari Roar the more I like. The creation of Dallas dude Caleb Campbell has just released a video for "Implode," a fuzz-heavy daydream of nostalgic bedroom pop that is many shades of divine. Essentially, this is a song that needs to be in a Wes Anderson movie. Immediately.

The video's arcade setting speaks to the song's sense of hesitant naiveté that applies both to love and life itself. Shot on the down low, the video is a charmer. And so is Ari Roar.
