August & J "For Once"

Description

August & J's song “For Once” reflects on ideas that pertain to love and loss, and it is exemplified through the main character of the woman from the video. In the beginning, we experience the aftermath of a moment in which this woman had been extremely angry. In quick, yet unique ways, the camera presents us with images that move in backward motions, causing us to witness the entire episode of her freak out in backward, slow motion. Every detail is made noticeable: from the red wine stains on her shirt to the broken pieces of glass from a mirror she was shattering, “For Once” contains an impeccable amount of profound lyricism that is both universal and extremely compassionate. August & J are also seen performing in a room during the aftermath of this woman’s disastrous emotions; the video as a whole hints at certain aspects of life that should not go unnoticed.
