Nakhane Touré beams through the fog in music video debut.
It’s been just over three months since his critically acclaimed debut album Brave Confusion unashamedly found its place in the hearts of a confused many.
Suffice to say that an album as risqué as Brave Confusion only deserves a video as bold and daring as its sonic inspiration. One-take-straight-through videos are always a gamble. In a modern world where the editor has reigned supreme as king of the pull factor in entertainment, what is it about a video in one take that’s its able to trap you for 4 minutes in its fog? It’s an uncomfortably and deceptively well-crafted art piece.
It’s likely that you’ve gotten to this final paragraph and still have no clue what this new video is about. To sum: Imagine “Fog” as the distillation of the existential crisis through a film noir crucible. Don’t fear: it won’t try to please you.
