Skylar Grey Is Stuck on Memory Lane in ‘White Suburban’ Video
Skylar Grey‘s grainy video for ‘White Suburban’ finds the singer playing the piano, lamenting life, love and memories, spliced with sped up footage taken while driving on snowy highways.
The roadside footage is from the perspective of someone in a car — perhaps a white Suburban SUV? Those scenes certainly indicate the notion moving forward while the lyrics focus on looking back.
Notice Grey’s iPhone is sitting atop her piano while she plays, as are candles. It makes the performance footage feel impromptu. The gritty, not crisp and Instagram-like focus add to the clip’s sadness and mystique.
