Today is a very special Monday as Allan Kingdom has released a video for the title track off of his recent project Northern Lights. The Minnesota native plays on the title of the song for its visual as lights of various color are used to illuminate the changing sets and scenery where the video was shot. The Peanut Butter Prince also graces us with some questionable dance moves in front of a large, color changing snow bank. The back of a car and a strange room also find their way into the video as sets, yet the strangest part is a first person shot of Kingdom rapping in front of his shadow which is used multiple times throughout the video. Perhaps its meant to highlight the importance of light or maybe it’s just an artistic decision by director Kron, who knows, but the video is nonetheless a fine accompaniment to the song.
The fun doesn’t stop there though. After dropping “Bounce,” the first single off of the upcoming album 3001: A Laced Odyssey, the Flatbush Zombies have dropped a stellar music video for the track as well. Unlike Kingdom’s video the Zombies tell a story through their representation of the music. In a very Pulp Fiction-esque manner the crew creates three separate story lines which, for the most part, intersect throughout the video. The accompanying visuals are gritty and have the same feel as Meechy Darko’s raspy voice, fitting in perfectly with the Zombies’ aesthetic. Perhaps more videos are planned as well as “Bounce” ends in somewhat of a cliff hanger. Check out both of the videos below and let us know what you think in the comments.
