It was my great honor to act as the surrogate for the legendary Nick Lowe in this video for his beautiful song “Stoplight Roses.” Directed by the talented Chris Storer.
There’s something about the combination of lyrics and images in this video that really speaks to me. The orchestral melody in the song has this triumphant, fanfare feel, introducing us to these heroes swaggering onto the stage (even though it’s actually the closing track of the album) and that fits with the cinema setting. The anticipation you feel as the lights go down and the film is about to begin is one of those pure emotions that I never grew out of.
Also, I love how Danny Brown goes on for bar after bar using precisely two rhymes.
Even without a line like “Worst rapper on this track, third coolest” this would still kill it.
