Video of the Week: Kimya Dawson, “Solid and Strong”

Sometimes videos catch my eye for their special effects, original concepts, or the perfect match of imagery and music. Kimya Dawson‘s new clip for “Solid and Strong” (From her 2011 album Thunder Thighs) is none of those; instead it’s a simple, sweet tune paired with totally unrelated video footage of kids and adults playing at an indoor pool. Only a step or two removed from one of those Sesame Street live-action interludes, it’s a welcome respite from too-serious and too-pretentious videography…enjoy.
