Yom Kippur, the holiday that caused song of the week to appear on Wednesday, is a time for reflection and forgiveness. This week's song deserves the award because of its beautiful melody and its artistic and layered music video.
The video features a black man walking through a white, suburban neighborhood, raising everyone's unwarranted suspicion, and plays with our preconceived notions as well. The climax of the video leaves the viewer feeling a bit guilty.
Poppiholla's video is black and white to contrast our world around us. Not everything in life is black or white and not everyone fits into a particular box, we are all made up of different characteristics making us all unique.
The song Poppiholla sampled the song Hoppipolla by Sigur Ros, only changing the H and P to create the word Pop. It's a soothing song that contains elements of a relaxing and progressive style.
Have a good week and meaningful week,
