We love this music video for Sleepy Soul's 'Still Can't Dance', watch it here!
WHAT WE HAVE TO SAY:
We’re in love with Sleepy Soul’s music video for ‘Still Can’t Dance’. The new single, which features a creative texture and soundscape utilizes influences from the sounds of lo-fi, hip-hop, and electro-pop. It’s easy to kick back and relax to, but it also makes you want to get up and dance. The glitchy elements keep things interesting and the vocal production is infectiously catchy. It’s just one of those songs that you find yourself going back to over and over again.

A WORD FROM SLEEPY SOUL:
I’ve always wanted to write a dance song. I love the way the singer paints an image of the idyllic night between two impassioned dancers: the heat, the lights, the finesse, the exactness and cool smolder of every move.
In the lyrics, I paint the ideal scene of a couple’s locked eyes from across the hazy yet electrified dance floor (a lot of which is drawn from my favorite Earth Wind and Fire/Michael Jackson/Bee Gees lyrics). The counterpart makes their way through the crowded dance floor, only to find that the narrator (definitely me, I won’t speak for Nick), cannot dance whatsoever - the proof is in the music video.
Anyway, the message behind the song is that you don’t have to be able to dance well, just go out in confidence and enjoy yourself. And, at the end of the day, that’s all that truly matters.
A WORD FROM THE DIRECTOR (DUSTIN CARTER):
While listening to Sleepy Soul’s, “Still Can’t Dance”, I found myself connecting with the idea of facing obstacles. No matter how hard I tried, I couldn’t get past the idea of someone not being able to dance. I mean, it is right there in the lyrics, so might as well embrace it. But, as I began to shape that idea, it became a matter of deciding whether the obstacles in the way of being able to dance were physical or mental.
Mike Dalton (D.P. / other half of Stolen Sun) and I put together a shot-list of our must have shots, but also allotted some time to experiment and discover some new shots. We were lucky to have a super talented cast and crew push the vision forward throughout our two days of shooting.
Collaborating with Sleepy Soul on this video has been such an incredible experience. Their music doesn’t need a video to make it stand out - It standouts all on it’s own - but I’ll definitely take advantage of a great song to make cool video.
