Music videos are artistic extensions of the songs themselves, with many visual accompaniments becoming just as, if not more iconic than the song it was created for. As usual, some of our favourite songs of the week also had some of our favourite videos, with this week's list including Black Pumas, Chelsea Wolfe, CHISEKO, HEALTH, Jess Ribeiro, Kobie Dee, Peter Bibby, Phoebe Go, serpentwithfeet and Willaris.
