Singer-songwriter Buel is back with her latest video and single “Advice.”
“Advice” sees Buel heading in a slightly edgier and heavier direction. Her previous song “Bad Poetry” was much bluesier. Needless to say, Buel’s voice and music are very catchy. Combined with perfectly choreographed videos, her music stimulates many senses.
The video was inspired by the movie Being There. Buel used the film to inspire the video and lyrics. She notes that “I think in general I like how it played with mental constructions.”
Pulling from this idea,” I kind of created the song and the music video based on my perception of life, which is that knowledge and beliefs are very subjective and all dependent on our instincts and we just try rationalizing them by naming them as ‘right or wrong’, just to create ourselves a secure area. Then try to spread our beliefs by the advice that we try to give to the world or our friends etc.”
