Last Person - Jenny Owen Youngs

Here's the new video for "Last Person" by Jenny Owen Youngs, directed by Shervin Lainez. It is a concept so simple, yet so fun and so gorgeously shot. I get a bit of a vibe from her that she's not enjoying it quite as much as everyone around her, but she starts to almost smile around 2:40 in, and that makes it okay. She's just got this aura, especially live, that there's something darker in her head than the happy lyrics she's singing. It's disconcerting.

But the video is perfect.
