From bright colours and flowers to a beach and a cabin in the forest, these videos are sure to perk you right up. You might even forget that it’s winter! 


Mother Sun - Tangerine Beach  

It’s time to head to the beach with Mother Sun in their video for Tangerine Beach. The video serves up some sun, sand and a few cocktails, giving the viewer that vacation feeling. As the video goes on, the man who was enjoying his time on the beach starts to get turned around, becoming lost in paradise.
