Kurt Vile Documents young love in ‘Baby’s Arms’

Songwriter’s new video is a documentary of a young East L.A. couple

Fashion photographer and filmmaker Todd Cole's video for Kurt Vile's "Baby's Arms" – a cut from his excellent new album Smoke Ring for My Halo – emphasizes the gentle romance of the song by documenting the close relationship of a young couple living in East Los Angeles. Cole filmed the entire clip using a Windows Phone, which gives the footage an unpolished yet clean look. The video is astonishingly intimate, to the point where watching the clip can feel a bit voyeuristic. It's a genuine and quite beautiful glimpse into a couple's private world.
