Kele - Everything you wanted

  • Kele Okereke  (28) is generally known for being in the alternative rock band Bloc Party however he is currently working having a break and working on some solo material as a project at the moment and in June 2010 he released his first solo album. He plans to go back to Bloc Party but at the moment he wants to showcase some of his different styles.
  • The video begins with Kele crossing a road then he keeps walking forward, the camera follows his moves in a tracking shot. During this it moves from a long shot to a medium shot. Shot reverse shot is used to show what Kele can see and it also gives the audience a better view. 
  • During the chorus the mood of the video totally changes, flashing lights, shots of the sea and various fast paced shots of him are used in a montage. These scenes change to fit in time with the music.
  • The rest of the video features Kele walking around the streets of New York. 
  • It's a very deep song and you can tell this from the lyrics that he wrote himself, he also  puts lots of effort and emotion into the singing and the video (he even sheds a tear at one moment) the video makes you feel empathy and sympathy for him.
  • You can tell that the song is personal to him and he's written it from his own experiences because it's just him on his own that's acting in the video and hasn't got                                       someone else to do it for him.
