Zedd Takes Faceless to New Heights in ‘Find You’ Video
By Courtney E. Smith
There are many things to be found in Zedd‘s new music video for the single “Find You”: high production value, special effects, an action-adventure storyline and appearances by two guest vocalists. What you cannot find is a single well-known face.
This is the catch-22 that many EDM music videos face. Zedd, like many in the genre, favors putting unknown vocalists on his tracks. “Find You” features Matthew Koma (some may know him as Carly Rae Jepsen’s other half) and Swedish singer/songwriter Miriam Bryant. The two, along with Zedd, are featured in solo performance shots, one assumes to accommodate the busy schedules that wouldn’t allow them to all film on the same day, that appear to be shot inside of a light box.
Meanwhile, an action-adventure story plays out as the b-story. Shot in the Sequoia National Forest and the Malibu Hills, there’s an action-adventure chase, a murder of crows (generally taken as a bad sign and they certainly seem ominous in this context) and the reveal that it was all a weird mind-trip.
The video, directed by Jodeb, doesn’t suffer from lack of money. “Find You” can be found on the Divergent soundtrack.
