THE FINAL GIRL by Chris J. Norwood
NOVEMBER 2, 2020
The Final Girl by Chris J. Norwood is a fantastic work from top to bottom and defintely a must see.
Let me just say this first so we can all get it all out of the way and stop letting it take away from this beautiful work: yes this dude will remind you of Elvis Costello or Buddy Holly. Great! Let’s stop doing that, because Chris J Norwood is an incredible rising talent on his own, and if he keeps putting out music and videos like this you’ll have folks comparing new artists to him. I'm sure he hears that all the time, and I feel like a prick for mentioning it, but let's get to know Chris J. Norwood, because if his catalogue is anything like this song and video, we're going to want to.

The Final Girl is a music video sent to us by Chris J Norwood. What I generally do when we receive new submissions is hit the centre of the video to see what it’s like after it picks up. The first thing I noticed was the awesome production quality in this video. The colours, the beautiful camera work, and the slightly campy, yet totally loveable acting that hits you right in the eye-holes, puts a big smile on your face. Before you know it you’re thinking to yourself “holy heck, I really like this tune.” Turn it on below in the background while you keep reading, then go watch and listen to it all over again.

I think the mix, tones, and general feeling of the song from a production standpoint are fantastic. It’s spooky, but it isn’t. It’s modern, but it’s vintage to the core. It’s everything I want it to be. Most of all, it’s fun. The video is fun and the tune is fun. I really dig Chris’ vocals and lyrics. His look is dynamite too, but when you consider all of the above you know you’ve got a winning package.

I think this is a song and video everyone should check out. It rips. It rules. It’s a must listen. I can’t wait to see what else Chris J Norwood has for us in the future. I guess in the meantime we’ll just have to dig up his catalogue… boo hoo for us hey? Haha. Have a great monday! Stay Wild!
