The video for “Black and Gold” shows Brenna Whitaker performing with a band in an all white studio. The video strongly carries a nostalgic theme with the use of Brenna’s old school microphone and their choice to film in black and white. The video does an impressive job at capturing Brenna in an angelic look by being outlined with a hue of white light.
In the video for “Crystals”, Nanna Bryndís Hilmarsdóttir is performing in a cave while wearing gypsy type attire. The rest of the band is shown producing crystals in order to revive someone. The images of Of Monsters And Men forging crystals, silver ropes, and gold provides a wide variety of sparkling colors. The diverse use of colors makes “Crystals” one of the most visually stunning music videos ever made.
Kendrick Lamar’s video for “Alright” features images of predominately black communities, unflattering actions from the police, and Kendrick sharing money with African American communities in a braggadocios manner. The video is a social commentary on African American culture and the police’s unfair treatment of African Americans. The choice to film in black and white acts as a somewhat bleak view of the treatment African American communities receive in contemporary America.
