Upcoming alt-pop sensation Ben Hazlewood has released a new music video for his atmospheric track, “The Way You Do.” The song represents the power that love can have in someone’s life, while the ethereal, black-and-white video compliments the tone of the song perfectly.
The video was brought to life during lockdown by a skeleton crew. The simple-yet-impactful nature of the video mimics the loving relationship Hazlewood sings about when he says, “No one can hold me the way you do, no one can console me the way you do.” The visuals are alluring and expressive, much like Hazlewood himself. Despite not being a single, “The Way You Do” has comparably high streaming numbers for being the last track on his album, Bloodline. The video’s aesthetic is sure to please audiences and lull them into a state of contentment. Always mindful, Hazlewood’s kimono that he wears in the video is an environmentally conscious upcycled unique one of a kind piece by his friend, Angela Duncan (Re.d).
Ben Hazlewood’s dynamic voice has been instrumental in forming his signature style, inspired by big voices and prominent personalities such as David Bowie, Janis Joplin, and Stevie Nicks. His soulful voice mixed with his genuine lyrics make for a cocktail of magnetism and talent, that shines brightly in the alt-pop landscape and has garnered him praise from numerous publications. EARMILK lauded that, “It’s clear he’s truly found his creative voice and is no doubt to soon turn his status from burgeoning artist to pop elite,” while The Hidden Hits beamed “Ben Hazlewood is our latest alternative pop obsession that’s about to leave you stunned.”
