Of late our news feeds have been clogged up with amazing videos, with YouTube and Vevo being the perfect platforms for people to showcase their talents. Where we used to appreciate videos with high production values our tastes have changed, with the more basic the video the more likely we are to share it.
The car environment has become the perfect place to capture such talent with both established and aspiring artists offering us a window into their world.
