Deserts are taking the music video world by storm.

Big, vast and with soaring skies—deserts are HOT right now if you’re a music video producer. Why? Well, if you want a landscape to mirror the emotionally charged energy of a track, the desert seems like a pretty darn good place to start.

MØ, M.I.A., Unknown Mortal Orchestra and more have all strutted their stuff in the sunbaked sand. Desert music videos are going through a very real and serious revival.

Honestly, it’s never been a better time to be a desert. We’d like to be a desert. Why not? DIY Mag has the scoop.

Read a great interview with MØ here. There are deserts in Iran. And there are desert parties in Iran. Learn about them here.
