Video Review - Missing Her




Missing Her
by Wilding




Ooh, see, about a little while ago I heard the sweet, cute sounds of Wilding singing a super sweet, cute song all about….missing her, whoever ‘her’ happens to be, hence the name of the song, I guess (never said I was a genius, just an observer). What I loved about that song was its sense of new/old, its complete sense of time warp, like it should have been written in the 60s, but then it somehow fit perfectly into the now. It was catchy, it was cute, it was melodies and swinging and tapping and everything I love about vintage inspired indie pop music. 

I thought I couldn’t love it anymore, but then this little clip landed on my laptop and made me so happy it wasn’t written in the 60s, because my laptop and youtube wouldn’t exist in the 60s and therefore how would I ever get to watch it over and over and over again? I’d be one of those (fabulously dressed) weirdos I see in TV shows, sitting in front of (a fabulously stylish) black and white television set waiting for my favourite song to come on and I’d be heartbroken if it didn’t. That actually happened, right? I’ve seen it on the telly, it must be true. Damn, I’m glad I don’t live in the 60s. Anyway, I digress, I live in 2014 and when I love a clip I get to watch it as many times as I want, which is exactly what I’ve been doing with the clip for ‘Missing Her’, while tapping my feet manically and singing along and wishing I lived somewhere before now, but simultaneously really glad I don’t. In fact, I’d like to live somewhere like this clip, where everything is a little bit 60s, but EFTPOS is available at the local store, trains are fast and covered in elaborate graffiti and hats are as stylish as Justin Wilding’s is. Where do I get me one of those hats?

Jo Michelmore gives the ‘Missing Her’ clip three and a half Beatles heads out of five…
