2018 was such a smasher year in local music scene of North Eastern India. From International music bands playing at local music festivals to umpteen national acts from metro cities making mini-tours exploring this part of the country, and not to mention, the countless local acts releasing singles, EPs and dropping music videos all year round, it was indeed a year of musical strike in the local music scene . We saw various local independent artists releasing not just one but multiple music videos in 2018 which speaks for itself about the speedy gear-shifts coming up this year.
From the ocean of music videos released last year, we have handpicked 18 music videos, not based on the number of views on YouTube, the phenomenal VFX or CGI inputs nor the riveting drama and plot behind the video, but how incredibly they jammed with us throughout the year. Here’s our 18 best picks from 2018 (in chronological order):
Pelenuo Yhome – Build A Story (January 4 // The Rec.current, Kohima)
