Five Radical Music Videos from the Early to Mid-Aughts – Number Four: Iron & Wine’s Naked As We Came
Sam Beam has performed under the Iron & Wine moniker for almost fifteen years now. A solid songwriter with five studio albums and several EP’s in his catalogue, Beam also possesses the sharp skills of a visual artist as well. All of Iron & Wine’s artwork is produced by Beam, and he directs most of the music videos. With Naked As We Came, Iron & Wine truly shines.
Like most of Sam Beam’s earlier work, Naked As We Came exhibits beauty through minimalism. Filmed in one single shot, the music video is anchored by one gentle kiss.
Together, the song and music video create a luscious landscape that displays Beam’s sweet lyrics, which ponder life, love, and death with a soft sincerity.
Some thoughts on art, life, and theatre. Stay positive.
