Majical Cloudz's latest video is timid. "Downtown," the third single off Are You Alone?, is self conscious; tiptoeing around emotions. It's a simple video - just Devon Welsh and Neil Corcoran in black and white, Welsh deadpanning, calmly singing and dancing around. Welsh lays himself bare, admitting to being in love and trying to figure out how to deal with that. He's open about his love, sure, but you also get the impression that he's heavily doubting himself with every word he says. "Downtown" is an admission to vulnerability, but with a reassurance that unrequited love isn't the worst thing that can happen to you.
