In what could best be described as an epic Westside Story meets Rumble Fish tale, take a look at the video for the latest Sebastien Grainger single, “The Streets are Still A Mess.” The music video meets film was shot over three days in Glendale & downtown LA and is a whirlwind of dance-offs and pompadours. Conceptualized by up-and-coming director Eva Michon who pulled her inspiration from the likes of gang lore films like Warriors, song and dance staples like Beat It and the post-war German “Rebel Youth” photography of Karlheinz Weinberger.
Loving the new music I’m hearing from Toronto band Nightbox (via Neon Gold yesterday), the first single “Burning” off their debut album (set for release later this year). The track was produced by MSTRKRFT‘s Al-P and Sebastien Grainger and comes to you both in soundcloud and video form below. Band to watch in 2013 no doubt.
Check it out.
Here’s the video.
