Chris Bandi - Would Have Loved Her

July 07, 2020 Critic Jonni 0 Comments

This popped up on my YouTube recommendations, so I thought I might as well give it a shot, and I'm so glad I did as this is a very heart-warming song with such a massive story behind it. I've never come across Chris Bandi before, and a quick Google search lets me know that he is a rising American country singer who dropped his debut EP this year. He has everything going for him, his brilliant voice, great songs, and incredible music videos - well if this one is anything to go by. This song is a message to his father who has passed away and updating him on his life and his beautiful wife and daughter. It's such an adorable song that touches the hearts of everyone who hears it. His brilliant voice is accompanied by a piano throughout, which can sometimes overpower his vocal but doesn't stop the delivery of the strong message behind the track.

I wasn't sure what I was expecting when I clicked on this but it wasn't this incredibly powerful and moving music video. It's simple but so effective. The main scene sees Chris Bandi performing "Would Have Loved Her" on a piano, outside between two trees, and it's such a beautiful location. Scenes are intercut with a woman and a child who we presume are the wife and daughter he sings about in the song. The ending sees a wooden cross, suggesting he is singing the song to his late father, and it's just perfect. This video accompanies this song beautifully, and I cannot fault it at all.
