Moe Pope‘s artistry has always been on another level, but this new two-in-one video for “Sunday Morning” and “Cocaine” has me just how much I enjoy the Boston-based emcee’s work.
The Mack Fisher-directed visual opens with “Sunday Morning,” a cut off Moe Pope and Rain‘s Let The Right Ones In album featuring songstress Tea Leigh. The cropped shot guides us through what we can assume is a cool, calm Sunday morning. Nothing is overstated, and the black and white aesthetic provides an ideal visual canvas for the track. The quick-switching shots are simple but compelling, ranging from Moe playing the guitar and Rain going through records to B-roll of nature, the train and other everyday happenings.
The video switches to color with the change of song halfway through, and “Cocaine” (the first single off Moe and Arcitype‘s STLGLD) takes us through a day in the life of Moe, split into dual screens so we get different perspectives of the Jamaica Plain native throughout.
Watch the video above, and stay tuned for more.
