BEST MUSIC VIDEOS: ELLIPHANT "ONLY GETTING YOUNGER (FEAT SKRILLEX)"
We've covered Swedish bombshell Elliphant's prowess in front of the camera before, and now Ellinor Olovsdotter is forcing us to do so again with her best music video, "Only Getting Younger (Feat. Skrillex)."
Taken from her latest EP, Look Like You Love It, "Only Getting Younger" is an energetic drum and bass track that good ole Skrillex made for the feisty songstress. It's essentially a pop song that got jumped by an EDM track. The core of "Only Getting Younger" is Elliphant's aggressively haunting vocals, which are most dramatic and memorable on the hook that goes, "F*ck tomorrow. we only getting younger."
The video for "Only Getting Younger" is best avoided if you already have a hard time going to the dentist. Gilding seamlessly between nightmare-fuel and WTF-humor, Elliphant "Only Getting Younger (Feat. Skrillex)" is a video that demands to be seen.
I'm not saying you have to watch it, but you really should.
