A cocktail bar bathed in smoke and neon lighting sets an appropriate mood for Tobias Jesso Jr’s film clip for ‘Without You’, a vital piece of the puzzle in his story as an artist and for his ongoing narrative. Arguably one of our office favourites from his debut LP Goon, the single feels at home in a darkened corner as an oddly matched couple draw closer and closer throughout an evening. As if beckoned by its warm and fuzzy beginning, Without You is a song that celebrates a love of powerful and refined pop music whilst paying homage to a period in Jesso Jr’s life when unrequited love ruled everything around him.[youtube]https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=a7n3HG5vD-o[/youtube]
