Media Review: The Music Video for Quiet by Milck

During a conversation with Captain Di the Corsair, she had asked me if I had ever seen the video for the song “Quiet” by Milck. I had not heard of either the song or artist. I followed the link she provided and found myself moved by a beautiful song and a very inspiring video.

In the official video, a young transwoman wearing a school back pack is harassed by some other kids as she tries to walk by them. We then here the first few chords of a piano and lyrics from an amazing voice. The video continues to follow the first girl to her home in trailer with her mother and father, and her relationship with both. We then get introduced to another woman who is coerced into an intimate moment with her boyfriend without her consent. Meanwhile as we follow the story-lines of both women, we can see MILCK playing piano and singing. As the stories progress, both women find their way to a group of women either playing instruments and/or signing along with MILCK. What I found heartwarming was the inclusion of both women into a greater group regardless of who they are and a scene where the first woman and her father have a very tender moment. Both brought tears to my eyes, matter of fact I have watched the video a few times preparing for writing this and it did each time. I even showed it to my SO and saw her tear up as well. The message is simple yet powerful. And I for one felt inspired.

Positive representation is sorely needed to show that we are all just people and that we love, laugh, cry, anger as all others do. I don’t want to say much more than this for the video other than please watch it and see for yourselves what an incredibly talented singer/songwriter you will find in MILCK. I applaud MILCK for being inclusive in her video and considering that this song became an unofficial anthem of the Women’s March in 2017 according to Wikipedia, it makes me like this artist even more. So, when you go to look for the video make sure that you add in the words Official Video since MILCK has made a couple of different ones for the song. I hope you all enjoy the song and video. And when you do watch please come back and let everyone know what you thought of the message, the video, and of course the song. What is your take on it?
