Two Lost Souls Find Themselves Through Music in Avicii’s ‘Wake Me Up’ Video

Subscribe to PopCrush on

In Avicii‘s narrative-driven video for ‘Wake Up,’ two beautiful, pouty-lipped and angelic girls of different ages (they look like sisters) are out of step and out of place as modern period types mingling among those from another era. When the little one says, “The others… they don’t like us,” we’re left to wonder…

…who are the others and why don’t they like these ladies?

Well, watch the clip and find out as the older girl embarks on a mission to simultaneously find herself and where they belong.

The video — which mixes the then and the now — is like the song itself, which features folky, lived-in vocals and of-the-minute beatsmithing.

We’ll give you a hint without giving it away — two lost souls find themselves through music.
