Aly Tadros showcases childhood innocence in “Sweet On Me.”
Meet Aly Tadros: She’s a gentle-voiced singer-songwriter from Laredo, Texas who’s just released her sophomore album, The Fits (mazel tov!). With her delicate lyrics and wispy vocal tone, Aly kind of reminds us of Ingrid Michaelson meets Colbie Caillat with a Southern twang (and with extra pretty hair). Along with her single “Sweet On Me,” Aly’s just released a brand-new music video, and we’ll warn you: It may be the cutest thing you’ve ever seen in your life/might derail you from making it into work because you spent all morning crying and now your mascara is running down your face.
Watch Aly Tadros’ “Sweet On Me” video after the jump.
At the top of the clip, we see Aly casually sitting on her bed with an acoustic guitar, strumming the sweet-sounding chords to her song like it ain’t no thang. Next thing you know, two little girls appear (probably sisters) and start happily playing a game of “make believe” with their dolls. But instead of playing “house,” the two girls play “band,” casting Aly as the female doll, the male doll as Aly’s band, and a toy truck as a tour bus!
“Sweet On Me” reaches new warm and fuzzy heights when the girls’ game becomes a Michel Gondry-ish cardboard-cutout/diorama animation of Aly and her band traveling by bus — first on the road, then by sea (except the sea is really a bathtub). We know it sounds a little confusing, but we assure you this video’s worth
a good cry a watch — just lock yourself in your room, get extra makeup remover, nine boxes of tissues, a pack of Double Stuf Oreos, and you’ll be all set. Also, another heads-up to all the chicks out there — this video will probably make your ovaries explode. Don’t say we didn’t warn you!
