Video review plus Celeb Juice discussion, it’s Jedward with “Luminous”
Jedward have definitely produced their best video to date for their new single ‘Luminous’.
The futuristic video sees the boys channelling a slight 80′s vibe as the song starts up before transforming into ‘alien’ like creatures in outer space. Looking like a cross between a Lord of the Rings character and a topless God the scenes flit between light effects, topless dancing and paint jumping off the floor.
Honestly this song is their best yet and I’m so glad that they have been given a larger enough video budget to match the potential of this single. I especially enjoyed the ‘Thor’ like moment at 1.49 where one of the twins literally punched a fault line into the earth.
There are enough different scenes and moments to hold your attention all the way through this video – again I hope that the music stations pick this up for rotation.
I would say though…on one hand this video and single is AMAZING and if I was introduced to Jedward via ‘Luminous’ I would think they were a hipster/extremely cool group. But then in the same week I see this on Celebrity Juice…I get that they are probably paid a really good sum to be on this show and sometimes it is funny…but this one just jars with their music career for me..perhaps it is time to choose their gigs more carefully? Watch and decide for yourself…as also let us know your thoughts in the comments section!
